The concert pairs Mozart’s String Quartet in d minor, k 421 with Mendelssohn’s String Quartet Opus 44, No. 3. The two pieces have some commonalities. Interestingly, the two composers could not have more different upbringings. Mozart’s family had financial issues and Mendelssohn had a privileged childhood where his parent retained an orchestra so he could practice with them.
