Ciompi Concert No. 1
featuring Rachel Kuipers Yonan, Viola & Brent Wissick, Cello

Saturday, September 23, 2017 | 8:00 pm

Baldwin Auditorium

For its fall concert the Ciompi recruits two acclaimed area musicians for a pair of string quintets. They begin with Mozart’s emotionally dynamic String Quintet No. 3, which ricochets from dashing to heartrending, Triangle resident and cofounder of the Pennsylvania-based Marinus Ensemble Rachel Kuipers Yonan adds the extra viola to this late quintet. Cellist and longtime UNC professor Brent Wissick steps in for Schubert’s String Quintet in C Major, the composer’s final chamber work and the widely accepted paragon of cello quintets. Known for his scholarship and historically attuned playing, Wissick is a fitting addition for this sweeping masterpiece.
