Twilight Concert: Del Sol String Quartet
The Thursday night summer concert series ‘Twilight Concerts’ replaces the Wednesday Noon Concerts for the month of July
Hailed by Gramophone as “masters of all musical things they survey,” the Del Sol String Quartet is a leading force in 21st century chamber music, vibrantly exploring the stories and sounds of the Pacific Rim.
Founded in 1992 and based in San Francisco, the group devotes itself to commissioning and performing new works, collaborating across disciplines, and creating innovative educational programs.
Del Sol has released eight critically-acclaimed recordings, including three on the GRAMMY® Award-winning Sono Luminus label. The New York Times praised Del Sol’s most recent recording, Scrapyard Exotica: “See if your foot can stay still once you put on this funky disc of rhythmically infectious… music played by the adventurous Del Sol String Quartet.”
Del Sol has commissioned and premiered over 100 works by a diverse range of composers, including Terry Riley, Mason Bates, Gabriela Lena Frank, Chinary Ung, Mohammed Fairouz, Tania León, Ken Ueno, Peter Sculthorpe, Reza Vali and Per Nørgård.
The Quartet has performed on prominent concert series nationwide, including the Kennedy Center, Library of Congress, National Gallery of Art, Smithsonian’s Freer Gallery in Washington, DC; Symphony Space, NYC; Cabrillo Festival of Contemporary Music, Santa Cruz; Chautauqua Institution, Chautauqua, NY; Clefworks Festival, Montgomery, AL; Colorado Music Festival, Boulder; Other Minds Festival, San Francisco; Santa Fe Opera; University of Vermont Lane Series; and internationally in Switzerland, France, China, South Korea, Canada and Mexico. Del Sol also has held residencies at various educational institutions across the US.
