but you alone for String Quartet and Chorus WORLD PREMIERE

Leoš Janáček
String Quartet #2 “Intimate Letters”

David Lang 
A Father’s Love for Chorus

Mark Winges 
Letters for String Quartet and Chorus WORLD PREMIERE

A letter is meant to be read, connecting the reader with writer. These works, inspired by the dying art of letter writing, are meant to be heard.

Itʼs a natural alliance: Volti (SFʼs premiere new music chorus) joins forces with Left Coast for a concert about correspondence. Weʼll hear Janáčekʼs "Intimate Letters" quartet and moving music by David Lang based on a soldierʼs goodbye letter. Together our ensembles present world premieres featuring letters of Janáček, Goethe, Virginia Woolf, and others.

 

Doors open an hour before concerts. Open seating.
