Verona Quartet & Borromeo Quartet

About

The first concert of Chamber Music Raleigh's 83rd Season explores three masterpieces of the string octet repertoire with two award-winning quartets: Verona Quartet and Borromeo Quartet will perform Enescu’s Octet for Strings, Op. 7; Shostakovich’s Two Pieces for String Octet, Op. 11; and Mendelssohn’s Octet for Strings, Op. 20. The popular Sights & Sounds Series is usually at NCMA, but this special season opener and reception are at the North Carolina Museum of History.
