Friction Quartet - April 13th
Saturday, April 13 at 7 PM The Friction Quartet performs Franz Josef Haydn's quartet Op. 76, No. 1 (1798) plus Two Hearts by Sarang Kim and Abaciscus by Geoffrey Gordon.

About the late Haydn quartet, "it is full of invention and new effects, and seems the production of a sublime genius who has not expended his fire," this said by a critic contemporary to Haydn!

May the same be said about the two Friction Quartet commissions that complete the program with music that tells our own contemporary stories and defines the history we are living.

Note that on Friday, Apr 12, 7 PM The Friction Quartet performs Benjamin Brittens Quartet No. 2 in C Major plus The Roadrunner by Nicolas Benavides.

The Friction Quartets high octane music making has been called terribly beautiful and chillingly effective. The quartet was founded in 2011 by students at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, and since has established itself as a purveyor of new music for string quartet. The quartet was a prize winner at the 2016 Schoenfeld Competition in China and at the 2015 Frances Walton Competition and were finalists in the 2015 Fischoff Competition. Locally they have collaborated with the Kronos Quartet, the San Francisco Ballet, West Edge Opera and at the SF Jazz Center.

All sales final.
