Many chamber music ensembles are beloved due to their interactions with their audiences. In fact, the small, intimate settings in which award-winning ensembles perform, with an emphasis on interacting with their audiences, is what sets chamber musicians apart. Pacifica Quartet, having received the 2009 Grammy Award for Best Chamber Music Performance and the Avery Fisher Career Grant in 2006, only the second chamber ensemble to ever do so, specializes in these personal performances.
Pacifica Quartet’s exuberant performances and courageous repertory choices have made them a favorite among Houston music patrons. We’re thrilled to share that Pacifica Quartet is returning to Houston as a part of Houston Friends of Chamber Music’s 2013-2014 season on Thursday, January 16, 2014 at 7:30 p.m. in Stude Concert Hall at Rice University.
The program includes three powerful masterpieces:
Haydn’s richly melodic Quartet No. 4 in B-Flat Major, Op. 76, “Sunrise”
Brahms’s intense Quartet in C Minor, Op. 51, No. 1
Shostakovich’s dramatic String Quartet No. 7
"…playing of the sublime kind…" - Daily Telegraph, London
"…magnificently polished…" - The New York Times
