Established in 2007, the "Strings and More" series aims to enrich the concert experience by placing the compositions performed within a wider cultural contex. The series is directed by the quartet’s violist, Dr. Yoel Greenberg, head of music department at Bar-Ilan University. The other quartet members enrich the explanations with theatrical excerpts and literary examples.

Concert No. 1

 

Musical Mimicry

Presented by Dr. Yoel Greenberg

Joseph Haydn Quartet Op. 33 No. 2 The Bird
Carlo Farina Capriccio Stravagante
Maurice Ravel Quartet in F Major

 

Does music represent nothing but music? We explore this question from the early baroque until the end of the nineteenth century, following instrumental music’s sources of inspiration and the associations it invoked – from instruments mimicking birds and animals so instruments mimicking one another.

Benjamin Britten Quartet No. 2 Op. 36

 

England was always an important musical center, but after its golden era in the 16th and 17th centuries, produced virtually no significant composers for nearly two centuries, relying instead on imported talent. In this concert we present a concise portrait of English music, from its early days of glory, to its revival by Elgar and Britten.

Beethoven String Quartet Op. 132

Beethoven’s monumental quartet is one of the most celebrated works of all time. How did it inspire composers, poets, authors and film directors in later times, and how does it continue to accompany us until the present?
