About The Artist

The luminaries that inform Ravinia’s Steans Music Institute piano and strings program, from world-renowned violinists Miriam Fried and Midori to pianist (and former fellow) Alon Goldstein, are well versed in every permutation of string chamber music. Mozart left an indelible mark when he created his First Quintet, K. 174—the addition of a second viola became a standard for centuries to come. Schnittke’s String Trio contrasts the composer’s experience with a beaten-down, post–World War II Vienna with its golden age that Mozart knew and shaped. For his Third Piano Quartet (a form also elevated by Mozart), Brahms also crafted a dazzling variety of textures.
