Sunday, April 28, 2013 - 3:00pm - 5:00pm
The German Society of Pennsylvania, 611 Spring Garden Street
Philadelphia, PA 19123

The German Society of Pennsylvania will present the final concert in their 2012/13 “Wister and More!” series on Sunday, April 28 at 3:00 p.m., featuring again the famous Wister Quartet (Nancy Bean, violin; Davyd Booth, violin and piano; Pamela Fay, viola; and Lloyd Smith, cello).

The program is entitled “Latin Passions” and will include four of the most attractive and colorful works from Spain:

  • The Quartet opens with Joaquin Turina’s “La Oraciòn del Torero,” which gives a tonal impression of a matador’s prayer for serenity and poise before his confrontation in the ring.
  • Juan Crisostomo Arriaga was known as “The Spanish Mozart.” His first string quartet is a remarkable and impressive work. 
  • Enrique Granados’ Piano Trio, Op. 50, features violinist Davyd Booth as pianist in this eloquent and engaging work.
  • The concert ends with Manuel de Falla’s wonderfully energetic “Danse Espagnole,” arranged for string quartet by cellist Lloyd Smith.

Following the concert, there will be a reception in the Society’s Ratskeller with coffee and cakes and an opportunity to meet the artists.


  • General public -- $20
  • Students with ID -- $10

Tickets may be purchased online, by calling (215) 627 - 2332, or at the door 30 minutes before the concert.
