Overview

The acclaimed chamber music ensemble Calidore String Quartet is bringing works by Mozart, Schumann, and a world premiere of the String Quartet No. 2 by Hannah Lash commissioned by Elizabeth and Justus Schlichting for our Chamber Series.

Program:
Beethoven: String Quartet Op. 18, No. 6
Hannah Lash: String Quartet No. 2, World Premiere*
Smetana: String Quartet No.1
*Schlichting Commission

These four talented musicians have curated a beautiful array of music for the evening, and their artistry has been praised by The New York Times for its “deep reserves of virtuosity and irrepressible dramatic instinct.” Founded at the Colburn School in Los Angeles, “Calidore” serves as an amalgamation of “California” and “doré” (French for “golden”), representative of its reverence for California's diversity and culture as well as the strong support received from the group's original home.

This performance includes a pre-show talk with musicologist Dr. Byron Adams and will make for a perfect night of classical music.
