On Tuesday, April 7, 2015 at 12:00 PM, the Cypress String Quartet will present an hour-long preview of their 16th annual Call & Response concert. This concert, consisting of works by Beethoven, Bartók, and a world premiere by Philippe Hersant, will be performed at the Marines' Memorial Theatre on April 10, 2015 at 8 PM.
In commissioning this year's work, the Quartet chose the theme of "night." They grouped Hersant's new String Quartet No.4 “Der gestirnte Himmel,” with Beethoven's Quartet, op. 59, no. 2 and Bartók's 4th String Quartet. The Cypress String Quartet states that in their Call & Response programs, their aim is to "contextualizes the new
work, pairing it with the older masterpieces which inspired it, and
demonstrating the composers’ work as a process of ongoing inspiration
through the ages."
Tuesday's program will be presented in the Koret Auditorium located on the Lower Level of the Main Library. All programs at the Library are free and open to the public.
