Viennese musical royalty shines in this afternoon of miniature gems, with Lawrence Dutton, violist of the nine-time Grammy Award-winning Emerson String Quartet, and the NWS Fellows. With its sorrowful scherzo, turbulent finale and melodies that spell ‘Agathe,’ Johannes Brahms hints to an unrequited romance in his Second Sextet, claiming it freed him from his last love. From the Waltz King comes an iconic overture that captures the hilarious hijinks and grand dances of his opera Die Fledermaus. Brimming with Viennese charm, this clever arrangement is condensed for eight players. Named for a memoir about a father’s failing health, Australian composer Brett Dean’s “Old Kings in Exile” is a poignant meditation on mortality and memory.

Lawrence Dutton, viola

J. Strauss, Jr. : Overture to Die Fledermaus
