4/7/2015 - Chamber Music Hawaii

Chamber Music Hawaii - Galliard String Quartet

We're excited to host Chamber Music Hawaii again this semester. Join us for their first concert on Tuesday, April 7, at 7:00pm, featuring the Galliard String Quartet. Tickets are free for students with a valid UH ID.

This program will feature the following pieces:

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart – Quartet in F, K. 590

Jon Magnussen – new commission

Johannes Brahms – Quartet in C minor, Op. 51, No. 1

A much-anticipated new String Quartet from Hawaii’s own Jon Magnussen (UHWO Faculty) is framed by two perennially popular favorites: Mozart’s last Quartet, the culmination of his skill in the idiom, and Brahms’s richly lyrical C minor Quartet. “I’m fascinated by music’s ability to be perceived as a physical, almost tangible form – a mountain, an ocean, a winding road”, writes Jon Magnussen, “and its capacity to conjure up, in purely sound terms, the feeling or essence of a place. It is this camera-like capacity of music that I intend to explore in my new work for the Galliard String Quartet.”
