Artaria has completed part one of our Shostakovich quartet cycle performing 8 quartets (1,2,4,12,6,8, 10,9) in 3 locations around Minnesota. We now begin preparing the 2nd half of the works for our concerts next January. We will spend the next 9 months preparing quartets 3,5,7,11,13,14,15 and the 2 quartet arrangements from the Golden Age and Lady MacBeth. What a mind bending experience preparing these works along with our regular repertoire. We're loving every minute of this!
