According to organizers, the performance begins at the turn of the 20 century with Charles Ives and also features “Lyric from George Walker’s first string quartet, Florence Price’s distinct interpretations of folk tunes, upbeat dances from John Adams, and Joan Tower’s moving 9/11 tribute “In Memory.” Works by contemporary musicians Michi Wiancko and Judd Greenstein will be heard as well.
The quartet, celebrating their 20th season together and based at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, consists of violinists Nelson Lee and Meg Freivogel, violist Liz Freivogel (Meg’s sister), and cellist Daniel McDonough (Meg’s husband, Liz’s brother-in-law).
“After the past year, live performance feels more important than ever,” said Eileen Carr, ArtsLIVE program coordinator in a release. “We’re grateful that musicians are willing to travel and appear in person once again.”
