For all his popularity, performances of Felix Mendelssohn’s music tend to center on his melodic Violin Concerto and his two travel-inspired symphonies (the “Scottish” or “Italian”), leaving a vast amount of the composer’s output comparatively neglected. That’s especially unfortunate considering the consistently high quality of his art, especially his chamber music.
The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center will remedy that situation with a Mostly Mendelssohn program Monday night at the Harris Theater. On tap will be Mendelssohn’s Piano Trio No. 1 in D minor and his String Quartet in E minor, Op. 44, no. 2. The program will also include Schubert’s Quartettsatz and Mozart’s Adagio in B minor, K.540.
Concert time is 7:30 p.m. Monday at the Harris Theater. harristheaterchicago.org; 312-334-7777.
