Evolution of the String Quartet: Faculty Opening Concert
Featuring the Eybler, JACK and Parker String Quartets
The string quartet, as genre, is simultaneously one of the most established musical forms and one of the most rapidly evolving. This conversation between legacy and experimentation will be played out every day in our new course, EQ (The Evolution of the Quartet.) Who better to kick off this extraordinary new adventure than our faculty quartets guided in conversation by an internationally-profiled thinker and chair of the Music Department at Harvard University, the Canadian-British theorist Suzannah Clark.
