Intro with Bryce Dessner

"Darkness and light" is the theme of this season's chamber music lunch concerts. As contrasting as "darkness and light" are the string quartets by Shostakovich and Haydn. Based on the initials DSCH, Shostakovich wrote his own requiem: "I thought about the fact that if I should die one day, hardly anyone will write a work dedicated to my memory. That is why I decided to write something of this kind myself." Shostakovich's life was marked by the daily confrontation with his own death as well as the annihilation of countless people. Today, the piece is known as "In Memory of the Victims of Fascism and War".
