San Francisco Chamber Music Society:
A Concert by the American String Quartet

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 91 min
Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA

The second concert of the 1981-82 season of the San Francisco Chamber Music Society featured the American String Quartet. Recorded live on November 30, 1981 at the Fireman’s Fund Forum in San Francisco, this concert features works by Mozart, Janáček, and Schubert. The American String Quartet was founded in 1974, with all of its original members then still students at the Julliard School. By 1981 it was firmly established as one of the country’s most prominent quartets, and was at the time of this recording, the resident quartet for the Aspen Music Festival and the Taos School of Music. In addition to performing works from the standard repertoire, the American String Quartet also promoted newer 20th century works such as the first string quartet of Leoš Janáček, heard here.
