On Demand: The Reynolda Quartet: Farewells and Swan Songs

Faculty Artist Series

The North Carolina Symphony's principal cellist Bonnie Thron will join the Reynolda Quartet for a rousing performance of Schubert's C major String Quartet. Ancient Greek mythology claims that the swan sings a single song of exquisite beauty just before its death. Schubert finished his transcendent C major String Quintet in his final weeks of life, and many consider it his greatest instrumental work. The program also includes Dvořák’s deeply personal D minor String Quartet, written with particular poignancy in a year of tragic losses for Dvořák’s family. 

Founded in 2019 to illustrate a progressive partnership between two of Winston-Salem’s premier cultural organizations, Reynolda Quartet features renowned faculty-artists Ida Bieler and Janet Orenstein, violins; Ulrich Eichenauer, viola; and Brooks Whitehouse, cello.
