Mozart: Quartet in D minor, K.421

Kevin Puts: Credo for String Quartet

Beethoven: String Quartet in B-flat Major, Op.130

The Arianna Quartet launches their 2015-16 Touhill Concert Series with three riveting works that capture the power, grace, elegance and nuance of the art of the string quartet.  Mozart’s impassioned Quartet in D minor, K.421 opens the ASQ’s season, striking a delicate balance between hushed utterances and operatic grandeur, luring us into the beauty of Mozart’s dark timbres.  The ASQ is then thrilled to present Pulitzer Prize winning composer Kevin Puts’ mesmerizing Credo for String Quartet.  Originally from St. Louis, Mr. Puts has established himself as one of America’s most important composers.  Famous for its gripping drama and unparalleled intimacy of expression, Beethoven’s revolutionary Quartet in B-flat Major, Op.130 closes this evening of essential quartet classics.

This performance features a pre-show talk with the Arianna String Quartet. Please arrive 50 minutes early for the pre-show discussion.

Fine wine at the post-concert reception sponsored by Tavern of Fine Arts.
