The Program

Since forming in 2002, the Parker Quartet has been an award magnet. On their collective trophy shelf is not only a Grammy Award, but the Cleveland Quartet Award from the prestigious Chamber Music America and the ethereal praise of the New York Times, which called the quartet “something extraordinary.”

  • Mendelssohn—Quartet in D major, Op. 44, No. 1: In a letter to a friend, Mendelssohn wrote, “I have just finished my Quartet in D major, and I like it very much. I hope it may please you as well. I rather think it will, since it is more spirited and seems to me likely to be more grateful to the players than the others.” He then signed off with a lipstick kiss.
  • Schulhoff—Quartet No. 1: Written shortly after Schulhoff returned to Prague, his birthplace, after living abroad for nearly two decades, this swift-moving collection of galloping pulses reveals a jaunty and light mindset. Periods of silence and meditative calm punctuate the rhythms, creating an unusual composite structure.
  • Shostakovich—Quartet No. 9 in Eb major, Op. 117: One of very few revised works from Shostakovich, this quartet presents long, contrasting notes that build tension with a slow but engaging series of paradoxical chords. As for the first version of the piece? Shostakovich burned it during a fit of depression.<p>

Pittsburgh Chamber Music Society

In 1961 the Pittsburgh chamber-music scene was in need of some refreshing. So, in an effort to meet fellow fans, strengthen their community, and celebrate their favorite genre, a group of music lovers founded the Pittsburgh Chamber Music Society. The group imports acclaimed musicians and vine-ripened cellos from around the world, connecting performers such as the Juilliard Quartet and the Guarneri Quartet to audiences in the grand Carnegie Music Hall. The Society’s educational programs, meanwhile, ensure a bright future for classical music by inspiring and instructing elementary and high-school musicians.<p>
