Timothy Ehlen, piano

Lisa Gaye Dixon, narrator

 

Quartet-in-residence at the University of Illinois, the Jupiter String Quartet has firmly established itself as an important voice in the world of chamber music. Violinists Nelson Lee and Megan Freivogel, violist Liz Freivogel (sister of Meg), and cellist Daniel McDonough (husband of Meg, brother-in-law of Liz) embody the enthusiasm and intensity of interplay that characterize chamber music at its best, bringing to their performances “equal parts daring and understanding” (Washington Post).

 

Shostakovich: String Quartet No. 8 in C Minor, Op. 110
Schoenberg: Ode to Napoleon Bonaparte for quartet, piano, and narrator
Beethoven: String Quartet No. 7 in F Major, Op. 59, No. 1, “Rasumovsky”

 

This performance will run approximately one hour and 40 minutes, including a 20-minute intermission.
