Arianna String Quartet: Welcome Back!

Ludwig van Beethoven: Quartet in D Major, Op.18, No.3
Gabriela Lena Frank: “Leyendas: An Andean Walkabout” (2001)
Felix Mendelssohn: Quartet in E-flat Major, Op.44, No.3

The Arianna String Quartet kicks off their 2021-22 concert series at the Touhill Performing Arts Center with a program focused on hope, humanity, and the joy of togetherness. Beethoven’s first string quartet, Op.18 No.3, is an effervescent work that reveals the genius of one of the greatest-ever creative spirits at his very beginning. Celebrated American composer Gabriela Lena Frank’s “Leyendas” (2001) follows, with a six-movement walkabout through a mixture of western classical and Andean folk music traditions, with the ASQ emulating wooden flutes, mythical runners, and storming guitars. The ASQ closes with Felix Mendelssohn’s heroic Quartet in E-flat Major, Op.44, No.3, a piece full of irrepressible optimism and utter beauty.

The music will begin at 7:30; the doors will open at 6:30 for a Pre-Concert Talk that starts at 6:45.
