Lukas Foss - Quartet no. 3
Korngold - Quartet no.2
Crumb - Black Angels
Dvorak - Quartet in F major 'American'
Performing in the round, we will present four seminal American string quartets, allowing the audience to get closer to these evocative and dramatic works. From the overflowing melodies of Dvorak's 'American' Quartet to Crumb's 'Black Angels' for electric string quartet, a vividly descriptive work inspired by the Vietnam War, the programme traces the development of American chamber music.
