Each summer Ravinia’s Steans Music Institute brings talented young musicians from around the world to make music under the supervision of a renowned faculty. Then, in the spring the most promising musicians tour under the direction of acclaimed violinist Miriam Fried. This program starts with a youthful Beethoven exploring the string quintet with two violas format pioneered by Mozart, and concludes with the spirited Piano Quartet No. 1 by Fauré. The string trio by Czech composer Gideon Klein, composed at the Terezín Nazi Concentration Camp in 1945, brings back to light a remarkable work completed just before the composer’s death at age 25.
