Alexander String Quartet Returns to Sonoma
The next and final concert in the Sonoma Classical Music Society's 2017 season will be Sunday, May 14, at 3:00 p.m. at Vintage House, Sonoma, when the Alexander String Quartet returns to Sonoma.

The May 14th concert marks the Alexander Quartets ninth appearance in Sonoma since 2004, under the auspices of the Sonoma Classical Music Society. This year, the Alexander String
Quartet will perform three quartets highlighting the Classical and Contemporary periods, encompassing almost two hundred years of musical composition:

Mozarts String Quartet No. 22 in B-flat Major, K. 589 (1790), one of his three King of Prussia quartets; Dmitri Shostakovichs String Quartet in F-sharp minor, Op. 108, composed in 1960 and dedicated to the memory of his first wife, Nina; and the British composer William Waltons String Quartet No. 2 in A minor, completed in 1947.

Having celebrated it 35th Anniversary in 2016, the ALEXANDER STRING QUARTET has performed in the major music capitals of five continents, securing its standing among the world's premiere ensembles. Widely admired for its interpretations of Beethoven, Mozart, and Shostakovich, the quartet's recordings of the Beethoven cycle (twice), and the Bartók and Shostakovich cycles have all won international critical acclaim. The quartet has also established itself as an important advocate of new music through over 25 commissions from such composers as Jake Heggie, Cindy Cox, Augusta Read Thomas, Robert Greenberg, Martin Bresnick, César Cano, and Pulitzer Prize-winner, Wayne Peterson.

The Alexander String Quartet is a major artistic presence in its home base of San Francisco, serving since 1989 as Ensemble in Residence for San Francisco Performances and Directors of the the Morrison Chamber Music Center in the College of Liberal and Creative Arts at San Francisco State University.
