Pacifica Quartet

Former Ernst Stiefel String Quartet-in-Residence (2001-02) the Pacifica Quartet makes an exuberant return to Caramoor with a program of works by some of the most prolific quartet composers of all time, including one of three late quartets by Beethoven being performed this summer (see also the Danish String Quartet and current Quartet-in-Residence the Aizuri). Bookended by Beethoven is Shulamit Ran’s String Quartet No. 3 titled Glitter, Shards, Doom, Memory. Written for the Pacifica Quartet, this moving piece takes inspiration from the life and work of German-Jewish painter, Felix Nussbaum eliciting “admiration more than emotion” throughout its four movements (New York Times).

Beethoven  Quartet in C minor, Op. 18, No. 4
Shulamit Ran  Glitter, Shards, Doom, Memory

Beethoven  Quartet in F major, Op. 59, No. 1
