JACK QUARTET: IN THE DARK
Monday, May 2 at 7 pm
Georg Friedrich Haas's String Quartet No. 3 ("In iij. Noct.," 2001)is meant to be performed in an entirely dark hall, with musicians seated in four corners of the space. The idea of performance in the dark comes from Renaissance and Baroque composers who wrote settings of Tenebrae services, to be sung in gradually darkened churches during the three days leading to Easter. Haas alludes to this tradition by quoting briefly from a Tenebrae setting by the Italian Renaissance composer Gesualdo. Light and darkness are used in several of the Haasâ scores, forcing an association, or the perception of one, between sight and sound. Here, that connection is severed completely.
Please, no late seating due to complete and utter darkness.
