Faculty Artist Concert Series: The Indianapolis Quartet performs Robert Paterson

May 2 @ 7:30 pm

Ruth Lilly Performance Hall, Christel DeHaan Fine Arts Center

Faculty Artist Concert Series: Robert Paterson String Quartets 1–3

The Indianapolis Quartet
Zachary DePue, violin
Joana Genova, violin
Michael Strauss, viola
Austin Huntington, cello

Robert Paterson’s quartets span a period of over twenty-two years, with the first quartet having been composed in 2000, and the second and third composed in 2019, and 2020, respectively.

All three highly colorful works have various similarities: they all use copious extended techniques, but not for the sake of the techniques themselves, but as an integral part of the music itself. He also uses quotes in all three movements: the notorious “Love Boat” theme in Quartet No 1, quotes from music by Edvard Grieg in String Quartet No. 2, and snippets of various anthems in the last movement of String Quartet No. 3. All three quartets are in multiple movements, and they are all imbued with Paterson’s characteristic wit, technical prowess, and vibrant personality.
