Borromeo Quartet Plays Auerbach

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
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.
