Description

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

Program:

Haydn:* *Quartet in D Major, Op. 64, No. 5, Lark
