PROGRAM

Henry Purcell, Chacony (c. 1680)
Antonín Dvořák, String Sextet in A Major, Op. 48 (1878)
Franz Joseph Haydn, Divertimento in G Major, Hob. IV:9 (1766)
Leonard Bernstein, Andante Contemplativo (1944)
Benjamin Britten, String Quartet in C Major, Op. 36 (1945)

Between 1940 and 1941, a mad experiment at communal living unfolded at 7 Middagh Street in Brooklyn. Under one roof lived such diverse characters as Carson McCullers, Gypsy Rose Lee, W. H. Auden, and Benjamin Britten. Needless to say, Leonard Bernstein visited, holding court at the piano. This program pairs Britten's string quartet from very few years later, which is itself an homage to Henry Purcell, with a small Bernstein work, written as a gift for Serge Koussevitzky, conductor of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, from the same period. Rounding out the program are Dvořák's sextet and Haydn's Divertimento in G Major.
