Chiara String Quartet Performs Bartok & Gabriela Lena Frank at The Met Museum

March 18, 2016 @ 7:00 pm

The Met Museum presents the acclaimed Chiara String Quartet in its third concert as quartet-in-residence. On Friday, March 18, the Chiara will perform Bartok’s String Quartet No. 4 and Gabriela Lena Frank’s Leyendas: An Andean Walkabout entirely from memory, a new way of playing that the New York Times describes as “fresh and vital.”

Composer Gabriela Lena Frank draws on her Peruvian roots for Leyendas: An Andean Walkabout, which was written for the Chiara. The Los Angeles Times has described the piece as “string writing that is exceptionally smooth and idiomatic” which “bursts with color and fresh individuality.”
