Jupiter String Quartet Gives Virtual Concert presented by Chamber Music at the Clark at UCLA
May 16 @ 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM PDTFree
On May 16, 2021 at 1:00pm PT, the Jupiter Quartet will perform a virtual concert presented by Chamber Music at the Clark at UCLA. The program features Felix Mendelssohn’s String Quartet No. 6 in F minor, Op. 80; Fanny Mendelssohn Hensel’s String Quartet in E-flat Major; and Judd Greenstein’s Four on the Floor. Of his piece, written in 2006, Greenstein writes, “I wanted to write a piece that really rocked, not in the easy sense of writing out rock chords, but in the energy and vibe that would be conveyed in the music. To get this effect, I took advantage of the precise playing of a good string quartet, as well as the dramatic sounds of strings moving with and against each other.”
