ECHOES OF HOLLYWOOD
Sunday, March 16, 2014 (Wayzata)
Sunday, March 23, 2014 (Sundin)

This program was created around the very rare and unusual composition, Echoes for String Quartet by the academy award-winning Hollywood film composer Bernard Herrmann (best known for penning the fear-inducing music for Hitchcock thrillers Psycho and Vertigo). Composer Arthur Bliss also had his music performed in the Hollywood movies and his Quintet for Oboe and Strings, a rarely heard gem from 1927 gives Artaria an opportunity to collaborate with the outstanding oboist Basil Reeve (recently retired principal oboe of the Minnesota Orchestra). This delightful quintet was commissioned by Mrs. Elizabeth Sprague Coolidge, an American lady with great enthusiasm for modern music who was prepared to put her money where her heart was.

VIENNA MADNESS
Sunday, May 11, 2014 (Wayzata)
Sunday, May 18, 2014 (Sundin)

Program four has a madcap title though the music is probably much less so. This final set of concerts will open with Franz Schubert's quaint and refreshing little String Quartet No.9 in g-minor (D.173) rarely programmed concert repertoire and a charming piece of music. The madness may occur in Anton Webern's Fünf Sätze, Op.5 a brief, quirky, jaunty journey through quartet textures and sounds. Or the madness might occur in Beethoven's ground breaking Quartet in Eb major, Op.127. Either way, come join us in this survey of these Viennese chamber music classics.
