Faculty Artist Concert Series
The Indianapolis Quartet: Evening in America
Presented by Katz, Sapper & Miller

Zachary DePue and Joana Genova, violins; Michael Isaac Strauss, viola; Austin Huntington, cello

The Indianapolis Quartet presents Robert Paterson’s String Quartet No. 3, commissioned for TIQ’s Carnegie debut in March 2020. This five-movement delight explores “other voices,” from stutters and poetic gestures to aggressive chants and heroic declarations. Jessie Montgomery’s “Strum” is anchored in a 21st-century American sound and experience. Her music interweaves classical music with elements of vernacular music, improvisation, language, and social justice. Dvořák’s enduringly popular “American” Quartet will conclude the concert with his reflections on the African American spiritual and American folk song, as well as the birdsongs he heard in Iowa during his summer there.

“The ensemble’s strength is in its energetic, often kinetic, enthusiasm, and each player’s individual virtuosity and flexibility—ideal conditions for a unified group.” — New York Concert Review
