String Quartet in G minor, op.10
String Quartet no.4 'Illuminations'
ArtistsAvalon String Quartet
The ensemble presents the world-premiere recording of Garrop’s String Quartet No.4 'Illuminations', a tantalizing, Pictures at an Exhibition-style tour of spectacular illustrations from an ornate medieval manuscript. Garrop’s music has been performed by superstar choir Chanticleer, the Detroit Symphony, Grant Park and Minnesota Orchestras, and the Biava Quartet, Lincoln Trio and International Contemporary Ensemble, among other notable groups.
Debussy’s lush, exotic String Quartet in G minor unfolds through iridescent quasi-orchestral textures. Golijov’s lyrical, deeply moving Tenebrae (Latin for “shadows”), written for the Kronos Quartet, pays tender tribute to the earth, depicted in its remote celestial beauty, haunted by undertones of human discord. Britten’s youthful, energetic Three Divertimenti and Alla Marcia are alluring, rarely recorded studies in inventiveness and perpetual motion.
The Avalon is quartet-in-residence at the Northern Illinois University School of Music, a position formerly held by the distinguished Vermeer Quartet. The Chicago Tribune calls the Avalon “an ensemble that invites you - ears, mind, and spirit - into its music.” The award-winning quartet captured top prize at the ARD Competition in Munich (2000) as well as first prize at the Concert Artists Guild Competition in New York (1999).
