PACIFICA QUARTET with ANTHONY MCGILL

SATURDAY, APRIL 29, 2023, 7:30 PM

St. Paul's Episcopal Church, 310 Montgomery St., Syracuse

The celebrated Pacifica Quartet returns for its sixth SFCM concert, joined by New York Philharmonic principal clarinetist Anthony McGill. Their program of "American Stories"  will include music by three African American composers. Dvořák’s "American" quartet was written while the composer was in the United States, and may well reflect the Negro Spirituals he so much appreciated.

James Lee III: Quintet for Clarinet and String Quartet

Dvořák: String Quartet no. 12, op. 96, “American”

Florence Price: String Quartet in G major: Andante

Valerie Coleman: Shot Gun Houses

MANHATTAN CHAMBER PLAYERS

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 7, 2023, 7:30 PM

We open with a string sextet drawn from the Manhattan Chamber players, whose roster comprises some of New York City's finest musicians. The most sought-after solo and chamber performers of their generation, its members find joy in playing with friends and colleagues they've known for years. The result is a "mellifluous blend of vigorous intensity." Classical Source

DUBLIN GUITAR QUARTET
SUNDAY, OCTOBER 22, 2023, 2:00 PM


"A quartet with a difference" said the Irish Times, and that difference is these Dubliners' unique devotion to performing contemporary music. With the help of their eight and eleven string guitars, they create, "a near orchestral palette of sound backed up by hall-filling power." Washington Post.  SFCM chose them to perform a new commissioned work in 2016. It is a pleasure to have them back again.

DANISH STRING QUARTET

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 4, 2023, 7:30 PM

Sponsored by Dr. Joseph W. Flanagan, M.D.

"I've been trying to snag this group for years," says SFCM Music Programmer Travis Newton of these three Danes (plus a Swedish cellist) who have been playing football and chamber music together since their student days. Named "Ensemble of the Year" in 2019 by Musical America, the DSQ were part of Lincoln Center's Chamber Music Society for three seasons. "Nobody could have prepared me for the tornado of energy the quartet unleashed...The players seemed to dance in their seats." Boston Globe

ATOS TRIO

SATURDAY, MARCH 2, 2024, 7:30 PM

When violinist Annette von Hehn, pianist Thomas Hoppe, and cellos Stefan Heinemeyer formed a trio in Berlin in 2002, they bonded together so closely that they chose an acronym of their names as the group's title. Two decades of triumph on the world's concert stages have only intensified this artistic unity. "Three voices--one sound: it's the absolutely perfect unity of phrasing, sound, feel, and interpretation that distinguished the ATOS from all others." Detroit Free Press

WINDSYNC

SATURDAY, APRIL 6, 2024, 7:30 PM

The lively musicians of this Houston-based group strive for immediacy with their audience by playing all their repertoire--wind quintet classics and adaptations of other beloved music--from memory. "Staunchly dedicated to pushing the boundaries...with youthful, pop-rock sensibility." Winnipeg Free Press

AMERICAN STRING QUARTET

SATURDAY, MAY 4, 2024, 7:30 PM

We welcome back the American, surely one of the finest string quartets performing today, during their 50th anniversary season. Over the years, the ASQ has performed world-wide and recorded the complete string quartets of Beethoven, Schubert, Schoenberg, and Bartok. Their complete Mozart String Quartets, performed on a matched set of instruments by Stradivarius, is considered the gold standard. "Luxurious, beautifully sculptured performances." New Yorker
