 Program

Haydn, Quartet in D minor (incomplete), Op. 103

Schubert, Quartet in A minor, D. 804

Here we are again–a new concert season, a new Last Fridays series, and...the same old music. When the members of Liebesfreud were discussing repertoire for the next few months, one of us mentioned our 'roots': Haydn and Schubert (as well as Mozart and Beethoven). As roots go, ours are inconsequential, but you know at least as well as I do that these composers–and their quartets–are, in fact, the roots of pretty much everything great and important in music (in Western thought, I would claim) after Bach.

We keep playing together in the hope that someday something will come out sounding as good as it should. To quote Arthur Schnabel, Great music is music written better than it can be played.

Many of you have long accompanied us on the quixotic quest, and of course more companions are always welcome. We would like to express our profound gratitude for your loyalty, both to us and to this 'same old' music. The quest continues.

Liebesfreud

On Tuesday, October 18 the Philadelphia Art Alliance is pleased to host a performance by the Jasper String Quartet, who will present a program including works by Mozart, Dvorak and Mazzoli. Winner of the prestigious CMA Cleveland Quartet Award, the Jasper String Quartet is the Professional Quartet in Residence at Temple University's Center for Gifted Young Musicians.

The Jaspers perform pieces emotionally significant to its members ranging from Haydn and Beethoven through Berg, Ligeti, and living composers. They have commissioned string quartets from some of today’s best composers, including Aaron Jay Kernis, Andrew Norman, Nicholas Omiccioli, Conrad Tao and Annie Gosfield. Critics and audiences commend the Jasper String Quartet’s “programming savvy” (clevelandclassical.com) and they have performed throughout the United States and in Canada, England, Italy, Japan, Korea, Norway and Panama.

The Jasper String Quartet has brought well over 100 outreach programs into schools and enjoys educational work of all types. In their Melba and Orville Roleffson Residency at the Banff Centre they embarked on "guerrilla chamber music," performing concerts in unusual settings around Alberta, Canada. Currently, the quartet works closely with Philadelphia’s Astral Artists to bring outreach activities to schools.

Interviews may be scheduled through Jim McClelland at 215-925-2038 / jmmc34@comcast.net. Photos available on request. The series is made possible by a generous gift from the Jim McClelland Fund for the Performing Arts of the Philadelphia Foundation.

Tickets for this performance will be available at the door.
