Quotes & Highlights
While many groups dabble in the modern idiom, few leap as fearlessly as the Pacifica Quartet. The foursome, who commission up to eight new works a year, earned breathless accolades for their performances of the complete Elliott Carter quartets—heard here in 2005 and 2008.
The Telegraph (UK) says Jörg Widmann is “truly a marvelous player” and calls his quartet writing “masterly.” Now these electric artists combine forces: the Pacifica performs Widmann’s Quartet No. 3, and are joined by the composer/clarinetist for Brahms' Quintet in B minor.
The Pacifica Quartet:
Simin Ganatra, violin
Sibbi Bernhardsson, violin
Masumi Per Rostad, viola
Brandon Vamos, cello
Haydn: Quartet in D Major, Op. 64, No. 5, Lark
Stravinsky: 3 Pieces for Clarinet Solo
