The Festival welcomes the electrifying Calidore String Quartet as guest ensemble. Celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2020, the Quartet features two SMF alumni. Their performance of the Mendelssohn Quartet in F Minor, written in memory of his sister Fanny, will conclude this program. The concert opens with faculty cellist Brinton Smith and Music Director Jeffrey Kahane in a performance of one of the final chamber works by Debussy. Faculty flutist Carol Wincenc will perform Goldenrod by Sato Matsui, a work written expressly for Wincenc.  The piece is an exquisite blend of the composer’s Japanese heritage and American energy.  A magical piano quartet by Caroline Shaw, the youngest-ever recipient of the Pulitzer Prize for Music, and two poetic miniatures for horn and piano fill out the program.
