Wednesday evenings offer eclectic programs spanning the range of the chamber music repertoire and featuring artists from across the Festival. After opening with Beethoven’s middle-period cello sonata, the program departs for Eastern Europe: first, to Brno, where a mature Janá?ek composed his only violin sonata at the outbreak of World War One; then, onward to Moscow, where Arensky commemorated the life of Tchaikovsky with this string quartet – remarkable for the deep sonorities brought about by its unusual instrumentation for two cellos.
