About the event

Continuing their exploration of both classical and popular genres, PCQ teams the music of Mendelssohn and Ginastera with prog rock classics from Pink Floyd. Themes of sorrow and isolation permeate the String Quartet no 6, written by a grief-stricken Mendelssohn after the death of his sister. Pink Floyd’s psychedelic take on similar emotional themes provides a powerful parallel, while the driving, dance-inspired rhythms of Ginastera’s String Quartet no 1 represent an earthy affirmation of the simple life.
