The Aaron and Freda Silberman Recital Series 
Clarion Quartet
Fate and Genius

The musicians’ commitment, imagination, and high technical standards make an irresistible case for the greatness of the music they’re performing.” – Classical Voice North America

The Clarion Quartet binds artistic virtuosity with humanitarian purpose in presenting great chamber works.  The all-female ensemble takes us on a journey through the minds of three masterful composers in the face of creative obstacles: Mendelssohn, grief-stricken following the sudden death of his beloved sister, Fanny, and writing his last major work, the Opus 80 Quartet; Shostakovich, in mortal fear of the Stalinist hammer, creating the 7th Quartet; and Mieczyslaw Weinberg, exiled from Warsaw after losing his family, composing a study in perspectives with his 2nd Quartet. 

Program: Dmitri Shostakovich: String Quartet No. 7 in F sharp minor, Op. 108, (1960) I. Allegretto
II. Lento
III. Allegro - Allegretto - [Adagio]
