Musica Viva NY & the Aeolus Quartet

Join Musica Viva NY as we present works by composers from three phases of German Romanticism: early (Mendelssohn); middle (Rheinberger); and late (Mahler). The Musica Viva NY choir performs Rheinberger’s only mass for double choir, interspersed by the movements of Mendelssohn’s last string quartet, played by the award-winning Aeolus Quartet. The program also features Mahler’s timeless Rückert Lieder, in a special arrangement by Gerhard Präsent for voice and piano quartet, with mezzo-sopranos Devony Smith and Chloë Schaaf, and bass Erik Anstine, soloists from the Musica Viva NY choir.
