Euclid Quartet presents "Vienne"
The Euclid Quartet, ensemble in residence at the Ernestine M. Raclin School of the Arts, will perform at 4 pm on Sunday, November 18. The concert, entitled “Vienna,” will take place in the Campus Auditorium of Northside Hall and will give a sampling of why Vienna was once the center of all things cultural. The selections are Haydn’s String Quartet in d minor, Op 103, Hugo Kauder’s String Quartet No. 1 and Schubert’s String Quartet No. 14, "Death and the Maiden.”
Franz Joseph Haydn, the "father of the string quartet," spent his last several years living in Vienna. His last, unfinished string quartet proves that his brilliance did not fade. Hugo Kauder's late-romantic style is permeated with the brooding passion of turn-of-the-20th-century Vienna. Franz Peter Schubert's powerful and dramatic "Death and the Maiden" quartet shows why his music is the epitome of Viennese style to so many music lovers.
The Euclid Quartet is a dynamic ensemble known for performances filled with personality and vibrant color. With members originally from the U.S., Great Britain, Venezuela, and China, they have won many prizes at major competitions around the world. Ara Guzelimian, artistic advisor of Carnegie Hall, praised their “wonderful intensity, insight, and communicative strength.”
Tickets for the Euclid Quartet are available in advance to adults for $10 and to senior citizens for $7. Tickets are $2 more at the door and are free to students and children. For more information and to order tickets visit arts.iusb.edu or call the box office at 574.520.4203.
