SFEMS Presents The New Esterházy Quartet: Beyond the Canon’s Range—Music by the Marginalized

November 5 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm PDT

$20 – $55

Familiar faces present as-yet-unfamiliar music in this fascinating program! The New Esterházy Quartet—the Bay Area’s beloved period string quartet—will guide us through a program that reinvents the Classical “canon.” Dive into works from the brilliant Italian violinist Maddalena Laura Lombardini; the swashbuckling Guadeloupean Joseph Bologne, the Chevalier de Saint-Georges; the Brazilian priest José Maurício Nunes Garcia; as well as compositions by Fanny Mendelssohn and Florence Price. In this journey, the quartet will be joined by a voice familiar to many: UCLA musicology professor Elisabeth Le Guin, who was active in the Bay Area for many years as a period cellist, will provide commentary to enrich our understanding.
