Calder Quartet 2018

Tuesday, July 10, 4:00 PM PDT

$15 – $40

Welcomed for a sixth year of sensitive and eloquent playing, the Calder will perform the Beethoven String Quartet No. 10, Op. 74, The Harp; Webern’s Five Movements for String Quartet, Op. 5; and the Beethoven String Quartet No. 16, Op. 135.

Performances like these — freshly rethought, impeccably played — do more than provide enjoyable listening. They reveal hidden dimensions, renew a bond with the composer, and justify the continuance of familiar works in the repertory. Boston Globe

The Calder’s Beethoven was full of flaring drama, furrowed brows and quiet intensity. But, with the tightest of ensemble playing and well-judged balancing of instrumental voices, the piece retained its classical integrity and polished finish. Washington Post

I’ve written before that every time I hear the Calder, the ensemble seems to have reached a new level. That remains true, and now only the stars are the limit, as the Calder takes its place as one of America’s most satisfying — and most enterprising — quartets. Mark Swed, Los Angeles Times
