“String Theory” comes to Sewanee

In collaboration with String Theory, the innovative chamber music series hosted by Lee University and the Hunter Museum of American Art in Chattanooga, the Sewanee PAS presents five musicians of CMS Lincoln Center: Gloria Chien, piano; Kristin Lee and Sean Lee, violin; Richard O’Neill, viola; and Mihai Marica, cello.


  • Mozart: Trio for Piano, Violin and Cello in E major, K. 542
  • Beethoven: Sonata for Violin and Piano in A major, Op. 47, “Kreutzer”
  • Korngold: Quintet in E major for Piano, Two Violins, Viola and Cello, Op. 15

If one were to draw a line through classical, romantic, and 20th century compositions, the straightest of lines would go from Mozart, through Beethoven, to Korngold. Each consecutive composer could not have written what he did without the former’s example, each building on the newly laid foundations of his predecessor. This program captures each composer at his creative best: Mozart’s E major trio, a confident, bright work which belies the troubled circumstance under which it was written; Beethoven’s Kreutzer sonata, a major statement that pushed the boundaries of what a violin sonata could be; and Korngold, with his massively inventive piano quintet, creating a rich sonic world that he would later expand to symphonic scope, defining the sound of film for generations to come.
