Program Notes

In a much anticipated return to SPAC, the Escher presents a varied program of string quartets spanning three centuries. Beginning with the famous “Sunrise” quartet by the “father of the string quartet,” Joseph Haydn, the group explores the dynamic and expressive range of this distinguished art form with a powerful 20th century work, Lyric, by George Walker, the emotionally charged Langsamer Satz by Anton Webern, and the Bohemian folk spirit of Dvořák’s Op. 51 quartet.

“CMS at the Meadows” will take place rain or shine at Pitney Meadows Community Farm, under the High Tunnel greenhouse, a large outdoor event space. Performances will all be 90 minutes long with no intermission.
