Event description

Description

In cooperation with the City of Palo Alto

Program:

We bring you Amy Beach’s unusually beautiful String Quartet in One Movement built upon three Inuit melodies. We will then explore Diacritical Marks for string quartet of Nico Muhly. Still in his 30’s, the prolific and versatile Muhly wrote the score for the Academy Award winning film ,The Reader, the music for Broadway’s revival of the Glass Menagerie, the opera, Marnie performed by the Metropolitan Opera in the fall of 2018 along with numerous other commissions. His Diacritical Marks is comprised of 8 short movements creating a sense of urgency and rhapsodic lyricism with great attention to detail. Bartok’s Piano Quintet in C major will astound you with its beauty but will not sound like what you have come to expect of Bartok. It is lush with melodies and grand in scope n the category of works by Brahms, Schumann and Dvorak. These beautiful qualities are precisely the reason this masterpiece has gone ignored by most. The public preferred the voice Bartok developed with age and unfairly regarded this quintet as inferior. We welcome prize winning pianist, William Wolfram, stunning violinists, Kristin Lee and Yoojin Jang, Boston Symphony violist, Daniel Kim and artistic director/ cellist Michelle Djokic for this breath taking program.

In collaboration with Rona Hu MD, Stanford University, CHIPAO
