Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: String quintet in G minor, KV 516
Olivier Messiaen: Quatuor pour la fin du temps
Great composers reflect on the end of life and the end of time. In November, the month of commemoration of the dead, Berlin violinist Sophia Jaffé creates a weighty program with Villa Musica fellows. In his G minor quintet, Mozart already anticipated the death of his father; in the "Quartet on the End of Time," Messiaen gave thousands of prisoners of war hope for redemption at the end of all days. The Frankfurt violin professor has a close connection to the young generation, since she herself has won awards at major competitions in Geneva and Brussels.
