Beo String Quartet – “Introspectre”

Ghosts Revisited is a stirring new album from Pittsburgh-based collective Beo String Quartet. Their merging of prog-rock and classical music makes for a uniquely impactful sound, full of interesting tonal twists and turns. Among the best representative of the band’s strengths on the album is the track “Introspectre.” The creeping strings and vocals infuse initially amidst a bass-y pulse, weaving a dark tale of disconnection. The 45-second mark sees an expansion of ghostly vocals and strings, sending chills. The mid-point sees an elegant turn, into a haunted procession of sorts. The track concludes with a rock-forward fervor, reflecting the band prog-friendly side. “Introspectre” is an eclectic success of a track, representing the rest of Ghosts Revisited well.

REVIEW: The Consone Quartet at Nairn Community & Arts Centre

When I describe the Consone Quartet as young and HIP, I am using the latter phrase in its technical sense of “historically informed performers” – they play appropriate period instruments, strung with gut, and use bows and playing techniques also of the period. As a player of period instruments who...

Claire Park is a violinist with the Kamiak Orchestra and acts as concertmaster for the Philharmonic Strings 1 Orchestra and assistant concertmaster for Kammerstreich. She is also an officer in the schools' music honor society Tri-M. Claire's most memorable orchestra moment comes from playing in a quartet for the 2020 Solo and Ensemble regional competition. "We played movement one of String Quartet No. 2 in A minor by Arensky, and it was one of the first times I had ever been completely immersed in a performance. Everything kind of faded away..."

Review | Danish String Quartet at the Rockwood

It’s a common programming procedure in the chamber music world to pair works from the standard repertoire with new compositions. Do people come for the familiar and stay for the new, or is it the other way around? At this genuinely brilliant recital by the Danish String Quartet, the answer was both. In the first part of the concert, that quartet stretched out in a dreamy exploration of Franz Schubert’s massive and intoxicating String Quartet in G Major, D. 887, op. 161. Violist Asbjørn Nørgaard introduced the piece by calling attention to Schubert’s immense authority as a composer of songs, saying that the composer’s gift for melody serves to slow the listener down, even to the point where one’s conscious mind “goes away for a little bit,” as he put it. The DSQ’s performance of this lengthy piece was sensational — focused, symmetrical, and perfectly blended, offering listeners an ideal opportunity to appreciate the composer’s expansive lyricism and adventurous dynamics.
