String Quartet Op. 76, No. 4 "Sunrise" - I. Allegro con spirito
Mezzo-soprano Simone McIntosh joins the Chamber Music Society of San Francisco for a program that will take you on a journey from the dark and stormy into the sunrise.
Be transported by Beethoven’s passionate String Quartet op. 18 no. 4, the haunting melodies of Respighi’s Il Tromonto, and the gentle glow of Haydn’s “Sunrise” quartet.
McIntosh’s powerful and soulful voice will captivate you. She encores with Nadia Boulanger’s tender and serene Cantique, in a world premiere arrangement for voice and string quartet.
Back by popular demand, Jory brings you trivia of “The Secret Lives of Divas and Divos – stars of the opera.”
