"What Makes it Great?"
What makes great music great? Through his concert presentations, commentaries on NPR’s “Performance Today,” and CD series, Rob Kapilow takes listeners inside the music; he unravels, slows down, and recomposes key passages to hear why a piece is so extraordinary.
In this program Rob Kapilow explores Franz Schubert’s powerful and moving String Quartet in D Minor, “Death and the Maiden” with a live performance of the work by the Signum Quartet. It is considered a pillar of the chamber repertoire. Signum’s recording of the piece was called “a deeply moving experience” by Strings Magazine.
