Review of Carnegie Hall Debut: “Golden State Warriors”

The second half featured Felix Mendelssohn’s F minor Quartet, written in the composer’s grief for the death of his sister Fanny. The Calidore Quartet put their shoulders into the meaning of the composer’s psychological crisis, with the instruments crying, sobbing or else wandering numbly from key to key as if in shock. This was a powerful performance, with the players putting themselves deep into the psychology of the work. “
