Ives Quartet: From Opera to Quartet

SEE EVENT DETAILS
Benjamin Britten String Quartet No. 3, Op. 94
Giacomo Puccini I Cristantemi
Giuseppe Verdi String Quartet in E minor

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 (1874–1954), 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. Beloved opera composers, Verdi, Puccini and Britten, also wrote a handful of gems for string quartet. Our program honors Britten’s centennial and Verdi’s bicentennial with performances of Britten’s last and Verdi’s single quartet, his only purely instrumental work. Puccini’s elegiac movement is one of his rare contributions to quartet literature and the only one still in the repertory.
