Juilliard String Quartet
Tuesday, October 29, 2013 at 8:00 PM
Since its inception in 1946, the Juilliard String Quartet has made manifest the credo of founders Robert Mann and William Schuman to “play new works as if they were established masterpieces, and established masterpieces as if they were new.” The hallmarks of its distinctive sound – clarity of structure, beauty of sound, purity of line and an extraordinary unanimity of purpose – have been applied to virtually every era and genre in the literature. The Juilliard String Quartet continues its vibrant tradition of music making and teaching with recently appointed first violinist Joseph Lin.
Their program will include:
- BACH – Art of the Fugue, Contrapunctus I-IV
- JESSE JONES – String Quartet No. 3: “Whereof man cannot speak”
- SCHUBERT – Quartet in G major, D.887
The Quartet has been instrumental in the formation of numerous ensembles, among them the Alexander, American, Emerson, Tokyo, Brentano, Lark, St. Lawrence, Shanghai, Afiara and Colorado string quartets, and is one of the most widely recorded string quartets of our time.
