Nielsen: String Quartet in G minor
Dvořák: String Quartet No. 10 in E-flat major, Op. 51
Afiara Quartet performed Osvaldo Golijov’s arrangement of Severiano Briseño’s El Sinaloense as an encore.
The former resident quartet of Juilliard, Afiara Quartet sojourns from its current home in Toronto to present an early piece by free-spirited Danish composer Carl Nielsen. The work is paired with Dvořák’s String Quartet No. 10, known for its folk-inspired Slavic themes. Join the artists for coffee and refreshments following the performance.
“A terrifically unified, versatile, idiomatic, and moving ensemble.” —San Francisco Classical Voice
