Having had to postpone this collaborative performance due to illness two years ago, PCMS asked these world-class musicians if they would reunite this season. After a heroic battle with leukemia, our dear friend and violinist Ida Levin, who had devised this program, passed away. The remaining artists decided to continue on and present this Philadelphia event in her honor. The program features a rarely-heard chamber music gem that Ida loved greatly: Alexander Glazunov’s String Quintet in A Major, a work allegedly inspired by Schubert’s great C Major Quintet.
