About this Item

Title
Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival: Orion String Quartet
Summary
This concert highlights the music of Australian composer and violist Brett Dean, who premieres a new work for viola and piano--a Library co-commission-with Juho Pohjonen. His arresting monodrama, "And once I played Ophelia," features the remarkable soprano Tony Arnold as protagonist. Striking, imaginative effects in both vocal and string writing sketch a passionate figure the composer calls a "feistier" Ophelia. The manuscript for Schoenberg's second quartet was given to the Library of Congress by Gertrude Clarke Whittall. The program included Schuman, Märchenbilder, op. 113; Dean, New work for viola and piano (premiere) and String Quartet no. 2 ("And once I played Ophelia") for soprano and string quartet; and Schoenberg, String Quartet no. 2 for soprano and string quartet in F-sharp minor, op. 10.
