The Borromeo String Quartet performs this Friday and Saturday at the Joseph F. Wheeler Theater at Fort Worden State Park. (Purchase tickets 24/7 online or at 800-838-3006.)
Fridays concert program is ambitious:
- J.S. Bach, Passacaglia and Fugue in C Minor, BWV 582
(arranged for String Quartet by Nicholas Kitchen)
- Lera Auerbach, String Quartet No. 3, 'Cetera Desunt,' (2006)
- Ludwig van Beethoven, String Quartet in C# Minor, Op. 131
One of the most widely performed composers of the new generation, Lera
Auerbach continues the great tradition of
pianist-composers of the 19th and 20th centuries. Auerbach's music is
characterized by its stylistic freedom and juxtaposition of tonal and
atonal musical language.
The Quartet recently shot a video of their performance of Auerbach's String Quartet No. 3, and we've included a clip from the 4th movement below.
