DaPonte String Quartet presents “Bookends”
November 13, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm$25
The DaPonte String Quartet kicks off its 30th season with a three-stop concert tour, performing one of the pillars of string quartet literature: Schubert’s Death and the Maiden. The tour includes a performance at the newly renovated Meetinghouse Arts on November 13.
The “beginning” element of the concert program is a contemporary work, Chapter One by Reinaldo Moya, who was recently awarded the Ellis-Beauregard Foundation’s Composer Award. The “ending” is represented in this program with a seminal work in the string quartet literature, Franz Schubert’s String Quartet in D Minor, Death and the Maiden, based on Matthias Claudius’ poem about a maiden pleading with Death to pass her by.
Tickets are available at a 10% discount online at daponte.org, or full price at the door. Students under 21 are free. The program will be presented without intermission, and patrons are asked to please wear masks.
The Friends of the DaPonte String Quartet brings excellence in chamber music and educational experience to audiences in Maine and around the world, under the artistic direction of the musicians of the DaPonte String Quartet.
