Cascade Quartet Continues Season with Cozy Classics
The Cascade Quartet, resident quartet of the Great Falls Symphony, invites you to don your coziest sweaters and comfiest socks and join them for a program of heartwarming chamber music! The concerts are on Friday evening, January 24, 7:00pm at the Ursuline Centre, and Sunday, January 26, 2:00pm at First Congregational Church.
The concert opens with Entr'acte, a charming piece by Pulitzer-prize-winning composer Caroline Shaw, and is followed by the lush melodies of Tchaikovsky's Unfinished String Quartet in B-flat Major. The first half of the concert rounds out with a set of Nordic folk tunes (arranged by the Danish String Quartet) that covers a range of emotion from rowdy and rollicking to pensive to sweetly tender. In the second half of the program, the quartet performs Brahms' String Quartet in A minor, Op. 51 no. 2, a harmonically rich, intensely passionate masterwork of the string quartet repertoire.
Tickets are available at the door or by visiting chambermusicseries.org.
