New Music, Calder Quartet, Thomas Ades, piano, Works by Ades, Liszt and Stravinsky, October 2, 2011

Overview

The members of the "superb" (New York Times) Calder Quartet are the closest thing to rock stars in the world of classical quartets. They are joined in this performance by supremely inventive composer and virtuoso pianist Thomas Adès in a program featuring his recently-premiered The Four Quarters, alongside Arcadiana and his Piano Quintet. The Calder Quartet is the winner of the 2009 ASCAP Adventurous Programming Award, and in tribute to its eclectic musical personality, has appeared not only in major concert halls but also on the late night shows of Leno, Letterman, and Conan O'Brian and at the Coachella Music and Arts Festival.

Program: Stravinsky: Three Pieces for String Quartet • Adès: Mazurkas, Op. 27 • Arcadiana • Piano Quintet • The Four Quarters • Liszt: Petrarch Sonnet No. 123
