SF Performances: Alexander String Quartet & Bob Greenberg: United Kingdom

at Herbst Theatre (10:00 AM)
The esteemed and popular Alexander String Quartet has enlivened SF Performances seasons for more than three decades, joined by Music Historian-in-Residence Robert Greenberg. Together they explore in music and words some of chamber music's most intriguing and important composers, their works, lives, and times. Looking back to the early years of the last century, the Quartet and Greenberg will explore the rich history of bright innovation and creation during often dark times.

Since its formation in New York City in 1981, the Alexander String Quartet has performed in the major music capitals of five continents, securing its standing among the world's premier ensembles. The Quartet has established a major artistic presence in its home base of San Francisco, serving since 1989 as Ensemble-in-Residence of San Francisco Performances and Directors of The Morrison Chamber Music Center Instructional Program at San Francisco State University.

The Quartet has long enjoyed a close relationship with composer-lecturer Robert Greenberg, Ph.D, SF Performances' Music Historian-in-Residence.

The program will include:
Music as a Mirror of Our World:
The String Quartet from 1905 to 1946
Program 6: United Kingdom
BRITTEN: String Quartet No. 2 in C Major, Op. 36 (1945)
WALTON: String Quartet No. 2 in A Minor (1946)

$75/65/55.
