Tetzlaff Quartet, Cal Performances
Violinist Christian Tetzlaff returns for a rare appearance with his namesake string quartetmaking its eagerly anticipated Cal Performances debutin a program of three landmark works that showcase the ensemble's vast expressive range. Mozart's series of string quartets dedicated to Haydn are the pinnacle of melodic ingenuity and classical refinement; nearly 50 years later, Schubert wrote his massive and mercurial final quartet, just a few years before his death in 1828. Written in 1910, Berg's complex and technically demanding Quartet became a seminal work of the Second Viennese School.
