An intimate evening of Chamber Music at the Adelphi University Performing Arts Center
Jupiter string quartet will be performing Associate Professor Sidney Boquiren’s premiere “Images,” part two of four pieces in his Book of Mourning at Adelphi University’s Performing Arts Center.
On the evening’s program is the music of Franz Schubert and Antonín Dvořák, as well as the premiere of Associate Professor Sidney Boquiren’s “Images,” part two of four pieces in his Book of Mourning.
“Images” was deeply inspired by the recent tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut refers Professor Boquiren ‑ within the piece is a dramatic chord tribute dedicated to the lives lost. “The same chord is played 26 times (with a melody underneath). Then directly after these measures, another chord is repeated (with slight variations) 26 times,” says Boquiren. It is bound to profoundly affect the audience as they absorb the music.
Jupiter String Quartet formed in 2001. They are a particularly familial group, consisting of violinists Nelson Lee and Megan Freivogel, violist Liz Freivogel (older sister of Meg), and cellist Daniel McDonough (husband of Meg, brother-in-law of Liz). After 20 years of making music together, their tightly knit ensemble has firmly established itself as an important voice in the world of chamber music.
