THURSDAY, MAY 3 at 7:30 PM
Internationally recognized as one of the world’s foremost quartets, the American String Quartet makes their debut at The Trust Performing Arts Center this May. Critics and colleagues hold the Quartet in high esteem and many of today’s leading artists and composers seek out the Quartet for collaborations.
The Quartet is also known for its performances of the complete quartets of Beethoven, Brahms, Schubert, Schoenberg, Bartók, Mendelssohn, and Mozart, as well as all the string quintets of Mozart, Mendelssohn, and Brahms. The Quartet’s recordings of the complete Mozart string quartets on a matched set of Stradivarius instruments are widely held to set the standard for this repertoire.
Joining them for the evening will be local, award-winning pianist, Christopher Shih. Their repertoire will include:
Ludwig Van Beethoven: Quartet in B-flat major, Op. 18, No. 6
Shostakovich: Quartet No. 7 in F-sharp minor, Op. 108
Schumann: Piano Quintet in E-flat major, Op. 44
Join us for a memorable evening as The Trust closes another successful season.
