It has been said that all art is political. In this concert, the Aizuri Quartet examines musical compositions written during a time of political upheaval. Ludwig van Beethoven's Opus 74, the "Harp" quartet, Steve Reich's "Different Trains," and Sofia Gubaidulina's String Quartet No. 4 were all written in response to sociopolitical turmoil or oppression. The three composers turn to the most intimate, powerful, and intense musical genre—the string quartet—to capture the intensity of their time.
