Lyris Quartet Plays Three Danielpour String Quartets

Lyris Quartet
Schoenberg Hall
"Radiant…exquisite...and powerfully engaged." – LA Times
The Lyris Quartet will perform three string quartets written by UCLA composer Richard Danielpour; his String Quartet No. 4 (Apparitions), String Quartet No. 5 (In Search Of La Vita Nuova) and String Quartet No. 6 (Addio) will be featured works on the 80-minute program. These three quartets were written in the first decade of the new millennium, and Quartets No. 5 and No. 6 were composed in their entirety in Italy. Although Danielpour is primarily known as an orchestral and opera composer, he has written a vast array of chamber music which includes eight string quartets.
The Lyris Quartet is the founding resident ensemble of the Hear Now Music Festival which focuses on the music of living Los Angeles composers. As part of this series, they have collaborated with and premiered works by Stephen Hartke, Don Davis, Arturo Cardélus, and Veronika Krausas, among others. The Lyris Quartet has recorded for Toccata Classics, ARS and Naxos.
Made possible by the David and Irmgard Dobrow Fund. Classical music was a passion of the Dobrows, who established a generous endowment at The UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music to make programs like this possible. We are proud to celebrate this program as part of the 2018-2019 Dobrow Series.
