Resonance of the Past

I was in the car for a brief jaunt this past weekend and listening to NPR. It happened to be Garrison Keillor’s Prairie Home Companion. Suddenly, I was stunned to hear the Artaria String Quartet – the string quartet that played at our wedding 19 years ago! – performing on Prairie Home. Apparently, they’ve relocated to St. Paul.

It was a long time ago, but I vaguely recall that they played some Mozart and some Mendelssohn (subsequent archival records check reveals that they played Mendelssohn’s Quartet in E Minor, Op. 44, No. 2; and Mozart’s Divertimento No. 1 in D Major; among other things).

Pretty cool!
