LVC Hosts Cypress String Quartet for Four-day Residency
10.31.13 |
Lebanon Valley College will host the Cypress String Quartet for a four-day residency spanning Nov. 6 to Nov. 9, during which the Quartet will work with LVC students, coach high school ensembles, present a lecture on Beethoven, and perform two concerts.

On Wednesday, Nov. 6, the Quartet will coach and work with high school ensembles from Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Delaware. Those ensembles will then perform a concert at 7 p.m. in Zimmerman Recital Hall.

As part of LVC's Colloquium theme of "Revolution," the Quartet will present a lecture titled, "Beethoven: Revolutionary or Evolutionary?" on Thursday, Nov. 7 at 11 a.m. The lecture will explore Ludwig van Beethoven's groundbreaking and controversial contributions to classical music, which LVC professor Dr. Hannes Dietrich describes as, "dropping down the rabbit hole into a whole other world."

Later that day, the Cypress String Quartet will perform its own concert at 7:30 p.m. in Lutz Hall of the Blair Music Center. The program for the night includes selections from Dvoák's "Cypresses," from which the Quartet draws its name, Bartók's "String Quartet No. 2," and Beethoven's "Quartet No. 2 Op. 59, Razumovsky." The concert is free and open to the public.

Finally, the Quartet will cap off its residency on Nov. 9 when it joins the LVC Honors Orchestra, composed of talented local high school musicians, for another concert at 4 p.m. in Lutz Hall.

The Quartet will also coach LVC music students throughout the week, joining classes and holding master classes, and will also work with students in the business department.

Formed in San Francisco in 1996, the Cypress String Quartet has garnered praise for its elegant performances and signature sound, called "beautifully proportionate and powerful" by the Washington Post, and maintains a full national and international tour schedule. The Quartet has performed at such venues as the Kennedy Center, the Library of Congress, and Cal Performances, among others.

The Cypress String Quartet has visited the College frequently over the past 16 years to perform and mentor students. "They've proven themselves to be not only truly exceptional musicians, but also really great teachers who have the ability not only to work with music students, but to do really interesting stuff across campus," Dietrich said.

Revolution is a year-long integrated series of guest speakers, performances, exhibitions, films, and academic courses that will consider the ideas of revolution and evolution as competing yet interdependent ways to describe the changes that surround and shape human life.
