The Program

Described by the New York Times as creating a "glowing warm sound" with "breathless intensity," the Juilliard String Quartet has garnered five Grammys since its 1946 inception, most recently a Lifetime Achievement Award in 2011. Past incarnations of the quartet have performed with the likes of Aaron Copland, Yo-Yo Ma, and Maurizio Pollini, and were even joined by Albert Einstein on violin at a private performance at the scientist's home in 1952.

  • Beethoven—Quartet in G major: A flighty opening startles audiences to attention with sudden, powerful attacks, the scale runs giving way to thoughtful strains before returning to breathless flutters.
  • Jesse Jones—String Quartet No. 3: This new work by the young, decorated American composer explores his personal grief cycle in five stages, flowing without pause from blurry sadness to peaceful acceptance.
  • Schubert—Quartet in G major: Published almost 25 years after the composer's death, this work challenges listeners by initially refusing to settle on a mode or chord structure, before morphing into a dramatic second movement.

El Paso Pro-Musica

It's hard to imagine going bigger than Handel's Messiah, but for El Paso Pro-Musica, it was only the beginning. Since its first, Hallelujah-filled concert in 1977, the organization has brought renowned artists from around the world to the El Paso and Las Cruces communities—and, thanks to NPR's live broadcasts of the their annual chamber music festival, to listeners across the country. Current Artistic Director Zuill Bailey calls on his globe-trotting career as a concert cellist and his impressive musical education to lead both the company's artistic arm and its ambitious outreach efforts, which include musical "informances," pre-concert talks, master classes, and a willingness to patiently explain the difference between violins and violas hundreds of times over.


Tips

  • “If you know that you will be attending a number of concerts during the annual festival, it is worth purchasing a package.”
