Bennewitz String Quartet. Bennewitz String Quartet.

The Bennewitz String Quartet travels to The Frick Collection for its New York debut. Named after the celebrated Czech violinist Antonin Bennewitz, the quartet takes pride in its roots, playing pieces by little-known Czech composers, like Olga Jezková and Slavomír Horinka, in addition to the standard repertoire.

The Bennewitz showcases three staples of the string quartet canon at The Frick Collection: Mozart’s “The Hunt,” Bartok Quartet No.3 and Schubert’s “The Death and the Maiden.”

Program details: (pieces performed by Bennewitz String Quartet unless otherwise noted)

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Quartet in B-Flat Major, K. 458, “The Hunt” 

Béla Bartók: Quartet No. 3

Gabriel Faure Nocturne No. 6 in D-Flat Major (performed by pianist Roland Pontinen)                      

Franz Schubert: Quartet in D Minor, D. 810, “Death and the Maiden”

Antonin Dvorak: “Dumky Trio” (performed by Smetana Piano Trio)

Sunday 7pm: The Frick program Aug. 25 features the Smetna Quartet not the one listed on the playlist online.

Why is the playlist frequently wrong - often listing previous tunes already played? I want to know the info on what I hear being played. Can't it be posted in advance?
