YOUNG ARTISTS FROM THE CLEVELAND INSTITUTE OF MUSIC PLAY FELIX MENDELSSOHN’S OCTET FOR STRINGS!
At the Cleveland Museum of Art’s 1916 Historic Building, Reinberger Gallery, Wednesday, May 4, 2016.
First Movement: Allegro moderato, ma con fuoco
Note: While the eight young artists (four violins, two violas, and two cellos) played all four movements – only the first movement has been posted.
The group was made up of students in the CIM Young Artist Program and Preparatory Division Friday Night Chamber Music Program.
The group included: Violins – Jieming Tang, Phoenix Avalon, Wenlan Jackson, and Sean Lim; Violas – Claire Peyrebrune and Sam Rosenthal; and Cellos – James Hettinga and Matthew Fields.
The large painting in the background is titled: “Laban Searching for his Stolen Household Gods”, an oil on canvas, about 1665-70 by Bartolome Esteban Murillo (Spanish 1617-1682).
The painting on the left is titled: “Four Figures on a Step”, about 1655-60, also by Mr. Murillo. This painting is a centennial loan from the Kimbell Art Museum, Fort Worth, Texas.
