Event description

Description

Tickets are $6 in advance (reserved seats). Remaining seats are free on the day of the concert beginning at 6:30 pm.

Themes of day and night pervade this program of music by Haydn, Dutilleux, and Debussy, reflecting the imagery of Whistler’s nocturnes in the Freer Gallery. Featured are Haydn’s String Quartet op. 76, no. 4 (Sunrise); Dutilleux’s Ansi La Nuit (Thus the Night); and Debussy’s only string quartet (with its dreamlike qualities).

The Rolston Quartet is the most recent winner of the prestigious Cleveland Quartet Award, as well as a first prize winner at the Banff International String Quartet Competition and Chamber Music Yellow Springs. Musical Toronto wrote that the group performs “with a maturity and cohesion rivaling the best string quartets in the world.” Part of the Bill and Mary Meyer Concert Series.
