Three great cities, three great composers. Their music embodied the cultures of their environs, and this program takes us on a vibrant three-city tour with composers as our guides.
Highlighting the afternoon is the SPAC debut of the Calidore String Quartet praised by the New York Times for its “deep reserves of virtuosity and irrepressible dramatic instinct.” The recipient of a 2018 Avery Fisher Career Grant and a 2017 Lincoln Center Award for Emerging Artists, the quartet celebrates both its tenth anniversary and the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth this season.
