program notes...
When Franz Joseph Haydn invented a new kind of sonata, he began for the first time to build narrative into his music with the use of a protagonist, antagonist, conflict and resolution. His idea caught fire over the next two and a half centuries as composers found new ways of telling more complex musical "stories." Soon, observers began to notice something strange: these musical forms did not just resemble story structures, they more and more resembled "biological" ones.
This fascinating development is the subject of a presentation by the DaPonte String Quartet. The musicians will both play from and speak about three important nineteenth-century masterworks by Felix Mendelssohn, Robert Schumann, and Johannes Brahms.

program notes...
When Franz Joseph Haydn invented a new kind of sonata, he began for the first time to build narrative into his music with the use of a protagonist, antagonist, conflict and resolution. His idea caught fire over the next two and a half centuries as composers found new ways of telling more complex musical "stories." Soon, observers began to notice something strange: these musical forms did not just resemble story structures, they more and more resembled "biological" ones.
This fascinating development is the subject of a presentation by the DaPonte String Quartet. The musicians will both play from and speak about three important nineteenth-century masterworks by Felix Mendelssohn, Robert Schumann, and Johannes Brahms.
