MW10: Mendelssohn's String Quartet in F minor, Op. 80, in 10 Minutes or Less

Masterworks in 10 Minutes or Less
Max Oppenheimer/Classical Tulsa

It was meant to be Felix Mendelssohn's tribute to his late sister, Fanny Mendelssohn Hensel, but it ultimately became his own requiem without words: Classical Tulsa host Jason Heilman introduces Mendelssohn's String Quintet No. 6 in F minor, Op. 80, in 10 minutes or less. You can hear the Castalian String Quartet perform the piece as part of Chamber Music Tulsa's 2023-24 season at the Tulsa Performing Arts Center on November 19.

Musicologist and Classical Tulsa host Jason Heilman is no stranger to Tulsa’s concert audiences, having been a frequent speaker at concerts by Tulsa Camerata, Chamber Music Tulsa, and other local groups.
