Concert Series: 

We will craft a string quartet program with an eye to historical trends in string quartet composition, from Haydn, the inventor of the string quartet form, to the final piece not yet written. Collaborating with Professor Susan Epstein Garcia at the New World School of the Arts, we will have a student string quartet composition contest with the winner’s work being the culmination of a glorious trip through string quartet history. Along the way you will hear Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Mendelssohn, Brahms, Dvořák, Ravel, Villa-Lobos, Elgar, Shostakovich, Webern, Bartok, Orbón, Gershwin and Glass.
