Shostakovich No. 7 Midkiff Quintet for Mandolin and Strings #2 (world premiere) Tchaikovsky Quartet No. 1 In 2015 Carpe Diem presented the work of mandolinist and composer Jeff Midkiff to great audience acclaim and subsequently commissioned Mr. Midkiff to write a new work for this appealing yet unusual combination of instruments. The new work pulls on folk and Gypsy style (Romani) themes to create a work sure to engage and delight. Rounding out the program are works by Russian composers Tchaikovsky and Shostakovich. The former was the teacher of Sergei Taneyev, who the Carpe Diem has made a special study of, and the latter is the most important Soviet composer of the 20th century.
