The Jupiter String Quartet and Tyler Duncan: Dover Beach, Samuel Barber
The Rolston String Quartet and Piers Lane: Piano Quintet in G minor, Shostakovich
The Rolston String Quartet: Different Trains, Steve Reich
Featuring Different Trains, a video re-creation of the musical piece, by Beatriz Caravaggio.
"…we live in a time when many people want a visual accompaniment for music … the brilliant multi-channel video by Beatriz Caravaggio really works…to intensify listening to Different Trains. She has taken documentary footage and through multi-channel placement and fine editing, made a thoughtful and moving piece. Bravo, Beatriz!"
— Steve Reich, 2017
