Pacifica Quartet

THIS CONCERT IS POSTPONED. THE RESCHEDULED DATE WILL BE ANNOUNCED AS SON AS IT IS CONFIRMED.

In light of the status of COVID in our community and with our health care system at its limit, the Chamber Music Society is postponing the January 29 concert by the Pacifica Quartet.  Tickets will automatically be transferred to the new date, or they may be used at another concert this season. Ticketholders may turn tickets back in as a donation to CMS or request a refund. Thank you, for your patience, flexibility, and support of the Chamber Music Society and the entire arts community as we work through this continued challenging pandemic. Please contact us if you have any questions.

A special concert by one of her favorite ensembles to honor the memory of our former Executive Director Susan Dubin who led our organization for more than three decades.

Enjoy a program featuring:
Jennifer Higdon: Voices
Shulamit Ran: String Quartet No. 3, “Glitter, Doom, Shards, Memory”
Ludwig van Beethoven: String Quartet in C major, Op. 59, No. 3

Recognized for its virtuosity, exuberant performance style, and often daring repertory choices, over the past twenty-six years the Pacifica Quartet has achieved international recognition as one of the finest chamber ensembles performing today.

 

Great composers throughout history have found the string quartet to be the ideal medium for creating their most personal, expressive, and forward-looking works. Contemporary Voices celebrates the pioneering achievements of world-renowned composers Jennifer Higdon and Shulamit Ran, featuring two of their string quartets (commissioned by and dedicated to the Pacifica Quartet) and appearing on the quartet’s most recent Grammy Award-winning CD of the same name. These significant works by two Pulitzer Prize-winning women are paired with one of Beethoven’s masterpieces. Op. 59, No. 3 is a work that highlights Beethoven’s radical compositional advances, showing that his great music remains “contemporary” for all time. pacificaquartet.com
