Ives Quartet Chamber Music Concert
The Ives Quartet has established a reputation for passion, precision, and provocative programming, winning accolades for playing that shows both super-refinement and visceral, rock-and-roll intensity. Inspired by the passionate, artistic commitment and unique temperament of American composer Charles Ives (18741954), the quartet has attracted critical enthusiasm for its "practice of reveling in the unfamiliar," championing an eclectic repertoire that combines established masterworks with underappreciated gems, neglected scores of early-twentieth-century America, and specially commissioned new pieces.
The Quartet's collaborations with acclaimed guest artists and composers add variety and diversity to the Quartet's performances. The Ives Quartet presents an annual home concert series in Silicon Valley and the Greater San Francisco Bay Area in addition to performing nationally and internationally at noted chamber music series and festivals. The featured program will include:
Haydn: OP.50, No.3
Schulhoff: Quartet No. 1
Dvorak: Quartet in F, OP. 96, "American"
"Whether the group was playing Beethoven, Dvorak or Quincy Porter, the 20th-century composer whose works are becoming an Ives specialty, the music felt thoroughly absorbed, idiomatic, performed from the inside-out."
