We open our season with Mozart’s Oboe Quartet in F, an early masterpiece featuring BSO principal oboist John Ferrillo. Beethoven’s String Trio in D, another early masterpiece, rounds out the first half of the program. If Mozart and Beethoven give us the sounds of the Enlightenment, Janáček moves us beyond with his intense and brooding first String Quartet. Written in outrage at the misogyny in Tolstoy’s classic story, the work depicts a relationship spinning wildly into jealousy and rage. Janáček quartets are always loved by our audiences.
