Brahms & Tchaikovsky

 

Miami Beach, Florida, January 29, 2016 - The South Beach Chamber Ensemble will present 19th Century Genius, on Friday, February 19, 2016 at 8:00pm at the Coral Gables Museum, 285 Aragon Avenue, Coral Gables, FL 33134 and Sunday, February 21, 2016 at 6:00pm at the MB Botanical Garden, 2000 Convention Center Drive, Miami Beach, FL 33139.

 

The event will feature two magnificent string sextets by master composers of the 19th century. The String Sextet in D minor "Souvenir de Florence," Op. 70, composed in 1890 by Russian composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky (1840-1893). The work was titled "Souvenir de Florence" because the composer sketched one of the work's principal themes while visiting Florence, Italy. Also on the program will be Johannes Brahms String Sextet #2 in G major, Op. 36. Brahms (1833-1897) did most of the composition (1864-65) in comfortable country surroundings near Baden-Baden, Germany.

 

According to a Brahms biographer, it conceals a reference to the first name of Agathe von Siebold (with whom he was infatuated at the time) in the first movement. The work is characterized by its exotic sounding opening of the first movement, by innovative chord structures and its many contrasts both technical and melodic. Both string sextets are scored for 2 violins, 2 violas, and 2 cellos.
