Event Description

String Quartets

As with the Symphony, the String Quartet as a genre is dominated by the contributions of the Germanic Masters: Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven, Brahms.  These composers contributed dozens of masterpieces for what is possibly the most well-known and beloved of chamber music configurations.  In contrast, the French masters Debussy and Ravel contributed a total of two works for the string quartet; one quartet each.  In spite of this extreme inequality in quantity, these two contributions leave nothing to be desired as far as quality: these are some of the most skillfully crafted and emotionally satisfying works an concert-goer will ever encounter.

 

This week’s featured quartet, Debussy's String Quartet Op. 10, was composed in 1893, and exhibits a broad range of influences, from the cyclic motive usage of fellow Frenchman Cesar Franck, to the modal harmonies found in Javanese Gamelan ensembles.  Cast in four movements, the work is broad ranging in it's emotional affect-particularly striking are the floating climaxes of the third movement, titled  "Andantino, doucement expressif," which will take your breath away.

The poet this week will be James Burbank. Educator, professional writer, editor, fiction writer, and poet Burbank has written and published over 200 articles for publications such as “The World & I magazine.” “New York Times,” “Los Angeles Herald-Examiner,” “National Catholic Reperter,” and “New Mexico Magazine.” He is a author of “Vanishing Lobo: The Mexican Wolf and the Southwest,” and “Retirement New Mexico,” New Mexico Magazine press’s best selling book now in its fourth edition.  His poetry and fiction have appeared in “Fish Drum,” “Attaboy,” “Active Anthology,” and “Adobe Walls.” As as satirist, he has appeared at the Cell Theater. Burbank teaches at UNM where he serves as the Director of the Professional Writing Internship Program.
