Felix Mendelssohn takes us on an emotional journey with his String quartet No. 2 in A minor, where a quotation from his song "Ist es wahr?” (“Must it be?”) serves as a unifying motif, a quotation that references destiny and freedom, and which also gives the title to the program. Then, Johann Sebastian Bach envelops us in the beauty of the Air on the G string, a recognizable melody performed on violin and piano. Brahms’ Sonata No. 3 for violin and piano completes this musical evening. Brahms said that a force, or “supreme spirit”, creates his works through him. These works, as the Sonata in d minor, provoke deep resonances in the spirit of the listener.
