What You'll Get

Hear one of the world's most renowned string quartets on two of the world's most historic sets of instruments when the Axelrod String Quartet plays at the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History. They'll be performing on instruments made by Antonio Stradivari and his teacher Nicolo Amati. The program features a Haydn quartet and two pieces by Mendelssohn: Quartet in A Minor and his brilliant String Octet in E-flat. Written when Mendelssohn was only 16, the Octet is widely considered the most outstanding major composition by one so young, even surpassing the efforts of such famous prodigies as Mozart and Schubert. The Axelrod will be joined by special guest artists the Excelsa Quartet.

There is a pre-concert lecture one hour before the performance.
