The work of Fordham Distinguished Professor of English and Music Lawrence Kramer will be among the featured compositions when Quartet Metadata performs on Nov. 14th at Fordham’s Lincoln Center campus.
Besides Kramer’s music, the group will play recent compositions for string quartet by Academy-Award nominee Carter Burwell and Shelley Washington.
The group will perform the premiere of Kramer’s Wingspan and Brahms’s evergreen String Sextet No. 1. The concert will be held at 7:30 p.m. in the Corrigan Conference Center of Fordham’s Lowenstein Center, and is free.
Kramer is this year’s winner of the ASCAP Virgil Thomson Award for Outstanding Music Criticism, for his book The Thought of Music, published by University of California Press.
Quartet Metadata consists of: violinist Lynn Bechtold, who has appeared in recital throughout North America and Europe; violinist Hajnal Pivnick, co-founder of Tenth Intervention, a collective of musicians that presents new music in New York City; violist Carrie Frey, a founding member of string trio Chartreuse; and cellist Jisoo Ok, who has performed in venues and festivals including Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, and the Kennedy Center.
