HSQ Chamber Series Concert: Ethereal Explorations
The Haven String Quartet is joined by Music Haven Resident Musician Patrick Doane and pianist Andrius Žlabys in the first Chamber
The Haven String Quartet is joined by Music Haven Resident Musician Patrick Doane and pianist Andrius Žlabys in the first Chamber Series Concert of 2023 with a beautiful and evocative program featuring Gabriel Fauré’s Piano Quintet No. 1 in D Minor, Op. 89, George Walker’s Lyric for Strings, and Sergei Prokofiev’s Violin Sonata No. 1, Op. 80. Join us as we explore these three magnificent pieces of music, from Prokofiev’s dark and brooding Violin Sonata No. 1 to Fauré’s Piano Quintet, a work filled with mesmerizing and haunting writing for both strings and piano. Finally, George Walker, the first African American to win the Pulitzer Prize for composition, dedicates his breathtaking Lyric for Strings to his grandmother, a formerly enslaved person, who died shortly before its completion.
