Boston Artists Ensemble Presents “Founding Fathers”, Quartets of Haydn and Schoenberg, with a Mystery!

November 17, 2017 @ 8:00 pm

Founding Fathers, presented November 17 and 19, will bring audiences deep into the inner workings of the format of the string quartet. Two works by Franz Joseph Haydn, in some ways the inventor of the string quartet, show him breaking from earlier models to elevate all four instruments as equal musical partners. After intermission, distinguished soprano Tony Arnold will bring “wind from another planet” (and glints of Mahler) with Arnold Schoenberg’s expressionist masterpiece, his second string quartet featuring poetry by Stefan George, breaking new formal and tonal ground. nThis concert also feature our annual “Mystery Piece” where the audience is invited to guess the composer of a short work. nArtists:  Tony Arnold – soprano, Bayla Keyes, Sharan Leventhal – violins, Lila Brown – viola, Jonathan Miller – cello nTickets are available online.
