The Arditti Quartet Comes to Town
On April 12, 2012, the Arditti Quartet, great champions of new music for nearly 40 years, come to San Francisco Performances. Here's what they're playing:
BEETHOVEN Grosse Fuge in B-flat Major, Opus 133 BERG String Quartet, Opus 3 Langsam Massige Viertel INTERMISSION ADÈS The Four Quarters Nightfalls Serenade: Morning Dew Days The Twenty-Fifth Hour BARTÓK String Quartet No. 4 Allegro Prestissimo, con sordino Non troppo lento Allegretto pizzicato Allegro molto
I heard the Calder play The Four Quarters this past fall; looking forward to hearing the piece again.
