The Art of the String Quartet – A Benderly Concert Event

May 8, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm


A Conversation Without Words  featuring Timothy Kantor, Laura Casarez, Emily Chao and Juan Mejia

Imagine hearing a spirited conversation without words!

Today’s program is one of the highlights of our concert season. It features two composers: Franz Josef Haydn, whose contributions to the development of chamber music led him to be called the “Father of the String Quartet” and Antonin Dvorak who, inspired by the image of “Papa”Haydn wrote the Quartet in F major while living in America. In the compositions of Haydn and Dvorak the Art of the String Quartet comes alive as our musicians eloquently “talk”to each other with their instruments. We invite you to listen.
