Who wrote the Kreutzer Sonata? Online!

Presented by Prof. Yoel Greenberg



String Quartet in F Minor, Op. 95 Serioso



String Quartet no. 1 Kreutzer Sonata


Beethoven’s dramatic and powerful musical language influenced composers, writers and thinkers. In his famous novella The Kreutzer Sonata, named after Beethoven’s great work, Tolstoy gave expression to the powerful influences he found in the music. Leoš Janáček, one of Czechoslovakia’s greatest composers, responded in turn to Tolstoy’s literary masterpiece with his First String Quartet, which carries the title of the book.

Family Portrait

Presented by Prof. Yoel Greenberg


Fanny Hensel Mendelssohn

String Quartet in E Flat Major


Felix Mendelssohn

String Quartet in F Major, Op. 80

In contrast to the way Felix Mendelssohn’s music was universally celebrated, the talent of his sister Fanny was suppressed throughout her life. Even today her works are seldom performed, despite their outstanding merit and despite her huge influence on Mendelssohn’s life and work. This concert will present a performance of Fanny Mendelssohn’s rarely-heard String Quartet together with a unique work by Felix in which he gives expression to his unbearable grief at her untimely death.
