South Florida Classical Review

At the opening concert of the Mainly Mozart Festival, the most interesting work was not by Mozart. It was by the Hungarian composer Ernõ Dohnányi, whose long life took him from the rich musical world of late 19th century Budapest to a grave in Tallahassee, where he died in 1960 after several years at Florida State University. Although Dohnányi’s reputation has faded somewhat, his works are still played, and on Sunday the Amernet String Quartet gave an intense, committed performance of his String Quartet No. 2.
