Joseph Haydn – Revered as the “Father of the String Quartet,” Haydn’s compositions laid the foundation for the development of chamber music. His intricate and melodious compositions continue to captivate listeners, showcasing his unparalleled craftsmanship and creativity.
Ludwig van Beethoven – A true titan of classical music, Beethoven’s chamber music compositions are a testament to his genius and everlasting influence. His ability to convey raw emotion through music has solidified his place as one of the most iconic composers of all time.
Caroline Shaw – A contemporary genius, Shaw’s works bring a breath of fresh air to the chamber music scene. With her innovative approach and distinct musical voice, Shaw’s compositions effortlessly weave together tradition and innovation, making her a perfect fit for T’ang Quartet’s dedication to both the classical and modern realms of chamber music. The quartet will play her string quartet, Plan & Elevation – a work which was commissioned by Dumbarton Oaks, a historic estate in the Georgetown neighbourhood of Washington, D.C.
The concert will transport the audience on a musical journey that seamlessly connects the past and the present. By performing these diverse works, the quartet pays homage to the rich legacy of chamber music while embracing the innovations that continue to shape the genre.
