Quartet Metamorphosis Vol. 2: Beethoven to Ravel
Please note, this event has expired.
Sylvestris Quartet plays music of Couperin, Faure, Ravel, and more!
The historically informed Sylvestris Quartet — Anna Washburn and Tyler Lewis, violins, Aaron Westman, viola, and Gretchen Claassen, cello — continues their exploration of the metamorphosis of the string quartet and the cyclical nature of music.
Part 1 began with Bohemian/Austrian baroque virtuoso Heinrich Biber and went all the way to “late” Beethoven (and then went back to Biber).
In Part 2, they’ll play works from Frenchmen Francois Couperin, George Onslow (the “French Beethoven”), Gabriel Fauré, Camille Saint-Säens, and Maurice Ravel, and their “Viennese” counterparts Joseph Haydn and Ludwig van Beethoven, as they track the French string quartet not only as a compositional form, but also as an ensemble.
