Three members of the Dayton Philharmonic Principal String Quartet present Ernö Dohnányi’s Serenade in C Major, a beautiful work written in 1904 that harkens back to the serenades of the 1700s, with a decidedly Hungarian flair representative of his homeland.

Then, the full DPO String Quartet join forces with DPO Principal Keyboard Joshua Nemith to perform the third movement from Brahms’ great Piano Quintet in F minor. Known as “the crown of chamber music,” it is a stormy work full of angst and emotional turbulence, which can be felt in this electrifying scherzo.

The show closes with Austrian composer Franz Hasenöhrl’s Till Eulenspiegel einmal anders!, arranged for violin, double bass, horn, clarinet, and bassoon. This work is a thrilling take on a tone-poem by Richard Strauss and is considered a cornerstone of the late-Romantic era of orchestral music.
