South Florida Symphony Presents The Grand Tour
In celebrating Pride Month, the Blue Door String Quartet is featuring two outstanding composers: the Russian Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky and the American Pulitzer Prize winner Samuel Barber.
Tchaikovsky, best known for his ballet music (The Nutcracker), wrote in a letter about his String Quartet No.2: “I am glad that you liked my quartet; I regard it as my best composition; none of my works flowed out of me so simply and easily.”
The next piece, Barber’s String Quartet No. 2, contains the music for “Adagio for Strings,” the middle movement. The first time Toscanini played the orchestral version, he remarked, "Semplice e bella" (simple and beautiful).
