Hear one of the world's most renowned quartets on two of the world's most historic sets of instruments -- made by Antonio Stradivari and his teacher Nicolo Amati -- when the Axelrod String Quartet plays at the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History. The program features a Schubert quintet, a two-cello piece that features guest violoncellist Norman Fischer wielding a powerful 1701 "Servais" Strad, and a piece by Mendelssohn, his brilliant String Octet in E-flat written when Mendelssohn was only 16, which features special guest artists the Excelsa Quartet. This glorious evening of music presented by The Smithsonian Associates will be preceded by a pre-concert lecture from Kenneth Slowik, shedding light on the lives and times of the evening's featured composers.
