ABOUT THE EVENT
Bowerbird is excited to welcome the San Francisco-based Del Sol String Quartet for an intimate concert in the Maas Building's Hi5 Studio. Featured on the program will be work Ruth Crawford Seeger's serialist "String Quartet" (1931), Ben Johnston's microtonal "“"String Quartet no. 10" (1995), and music by the radical early experimentalist George Antheil.
ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Hailed by Gramophone as "masters of all musical things they survey" and two-time top winner of the Chamber Music America/ASCAP Award for Adventurous Programming, the Del Sol String Quartet is a leading force in 21st century chamber music. Founded in 1992 and based in San Francisco, Del Sol's collaborative performance projects and chamber music programs explore narratives and cultures from around the world, reflecting the stories and sounds of the Pacific Rim as vibrantly as those heard in European concert halls or East Coast art spaces.
