Dear Members of the Baruch Community,
Every year Baruch is lucky enough to have the world-renowned Alexander String Quartet in residence at Baruch for two weeks. In fact, they consider Baruch Performing Arts Center’s Engelman Recital Hall to be their New York home. We would like to remind you that they will offer three concerts in the coming weeks:
This program features the New York premiere of Cindy Cox’s Patagón - a musical portrait of the southern Argentinian landscape inspired by a trip to the Valdes peninsula nature preserve in which Cox evokes aspects of sky, earth, and animal life “a stunning demonstration of how expert scoring married to a wide-ranging imagination can bear infinitely satisfying fruit,” (Fanfare). Patagón is presented with Haydn’s String Quartet in C major, Op. 76, No. 3, “Emperor” and Schubert’s String Quartet No. 15 in G major, D. 887.
This program, running just an hour, features Mozart’s Divertimento in B-flat Major, K136,
and Beethoven’s String Quartet, Op 59, No. 2.
Composer Tarik O'Regan's Gradual (2016), commissioned by The Boise Chamber Music Society, receives its New York premiere. Gradual is a reflection of the “perpetually shifting and evolving landscape... the unique geographical phenomena of Idaho.” O’Regan’s work, described as “beautifully-imagined, holding the audience rapt” (The Financial Times). It is presented in a program with Haydn’s String Quartet in G minor, Op. 74, No. 3, and Schubert’s String Quintet in C major, D. 965 (Jay Campbell, guest cellist)
