Chamber Music Concerts with musicians of the Cyprus Symphony Orchestra


Tchaikovsky considered his String Quartet No. 2, completed in January 1874, his finest work, as attested to on two occasions: In a letter to his brother Modest, dated October 1874, he wrote: “I regard it as my best work; no other piece has poured forth from me so simply and easily”, while in a later letter to his patron, Nadezhda von Meck, he noted that “I wrote the music to “Vakula” with affection and with delight, just as I did the Second Quartet”. It was in 1887 that Wolf wrote his Serenade in G major, a work that by April 1890 he started referring to in his letters as “Italian Serenade”. It is one of his few works other than Lieder.
