Guest Artist Recital
Blair String Quartet

Hailed as "a marvelous ensemble" by the Washington Post, the Blair String Quartet is in residence at Vanderbilt University, performing frequently in Nashville and around the country. The Blair String Quartet will present quartets by Franz Joseph Haydn and Antonín Dvořák, each composed at the height of the composer’s creative powers after achieving international success. Haydn’s Op. 71 features an inventive symphonic style, written after the composer returned to Vienna following his first visit to London. Dvořák’s sweeping G major quartet was composed after returning to Europe after several years in America, and represents a blend of folk music, sounds of nature, and heartfelt expression. Nell’ ombra, nella luce, from Pulitzer-winning composer Steven Stucky, is an imaginative and colorful work examining the different possibilities of timbre and texture.

Blair String Quartet.
