The Alexander String Quartet
Baruch College’s Ensemble-in-Residence
Thursday, November 19, 2:45-4:00pm, Engelman Recital Hall
Now in its 34th year, the Alexander String Quartet has performed in the major music capitals of five continents, securing its standing among the world’s premier ensembles over nearly three decades. Widely admired for its interpretations of Beethoven, Mozart, and Shostakovich (their two recordings of the Beethoven cycle and of the Bartók and Shostakovich cycles have all won international critical acclaim), the quartet has also established itself as an important advocate of new music through over 25 commissions and numerous premiere performances. The Alexander String Quartet is a major artistic presence in its home base of San Francisco, serving there as directors of the Morrison Chamber Music Center at the School of Music and Dance in the College of Creative Arts at San Francisco State University and Ensemble in Residence of San Francisco Performances. The quartet also is Ensemble-in-Residence at Baruch College.
This concert will take place in Baruch’s own Engelman Hall ("ideally intimate... perfect hall for chamber music” NYT, April 2006).
