String Spectrum

Chamber Soirée 4

Thursday | 5:30 pm | Holley Hall

Tickets from $35 | Holley Hall Seat Layout

The subtitle of Failing is "A Very Difficult Piece for String Bass." Our soloist reads amusing text and instructions while simultaneously playing increasingly strenuous music. Failing becomes an end goal. We then move across the spectrum to a challenging work for string quartet. Schubert's Quartet in G Major is considered by many to be one of the most beautiful string quartets ever composed, though so technically difficult it is not often performed. In it, the forces of light and dark battle against each other, and the ultimate winner is only revealed at the end.
