Known for their virtuosity, exuberant performance style, and often daring repertory choices, the Pacifica Quartet has been called “nothing short of phenomenal” by The Telegraph. They return to Harris Concert Hall for the Second String Quartet by Shostakovich, inspired by klezmer, or Jewish village wedding music and Beethoven’s radiant String Quartet in C major, Opus 59, No. 3, which will take you on a musical journey full of both contrasts and cohesion. Also on the program is Pulitzer Prize-winning African-American composer George Walker’s Lyric for Strings. Hear one of the world’s most dynamic string quartets in a program that is both contemplative and exhilarating.
