Alexander String Quartet

Saturday, November 16, at 7:30 pm

 

Coming soon to Arts on the Lake

The internationally noted Alexander String Quartet returns to play a new program at Arts on the Lake.

 

The Alexander String Quartet has performed in the major music capitals of five continents, securing its standing among the world’s premiere ensembles. Widely admired for its interpretations of Beethoven, Mozart, and Shostakovich, the program will include Mozart, Shostakovich, and Mendelssohn.

 

The quartet's recordings of the Beethoven cycle (twice), and the Bartók and Shostakovich cycles have all won international critical acclaim.

 

The quartet has also established itself as an important ad­vocate of new music through over 25 commissions from such composers as Jake Heggie, Cindy Cox, Augusta Read Thomas, Robert Greenberg, Martin Bresnick, César Cano, and Pulitzer Prize-winner, Wayne Peterson.
