The Calder Quartet presented a concert of new and not-so-new music that framed Schubert’s Death and the Maiden quartet with works by Webern, Mozart, and a Calder commission by film composer Don Davis: Vexed Man (inspired by Messerschmidt).
The Calder Quartet performs a broad repertoire striving to channel the true intention of the work’s creator. Known for the discovery, commissioning, recording, and mentoring of some of today’s best emerging composers (with over 25 commissioned works to date), the group continues to work and collaborate with artists across musical genres, spanning the classical and contemporary music worlds, as well as rock, dance, and visual arts, performing in venues ranging from art galleries and rock clubs to Carnegie and Walt Disney concert halls.
This event is presented in context with La Jeune-Fille et la Mort (The Young-Girl and Death) on Saturday, October 12, 2013, at 7 PM.
