Music & Conversations presents its next concert of chamber music on Saturday, June 6. Listeners arrive at Jack Rutberg’s acoustically divine gallery at 7 p.m. to enjoy the current exhibition and complimentary wine from Casa Torelli Imports. Music by the Lyris Quartet (violinists Alyssa Park and Shalini Vijayan, violist Luke Maurer and cellist Timothy Loo) begins at 8 p.m. Approximately one hour of music, new and old, no intermission. This unique series is produced by Artistic Directors Jane Brockman and Alyssa Park.
JUNE 6 PROGRAM
Johann Sebastian Bach, Partita No. 2, Chaconne (BWV 1004)
Thomas Parisch, String Quartet No. 1
Jane Brockman, Spring Quartet
Leos Janacek, String Quartet No. 2 “Intimate Letters”
Readings (by actors Chelsea Gonzalez and David Marciano) from the letters of J.S. Bach and Leos Janacek will frame the concert. At the time Janacek was composing his second string quartet, the elderly composer and a young woman had a hot and heavy correspondence. Both were married at the time. Of course, Bach’s letters are on the opposite end of the spectrum.
