Isabel Quartet with Sadaf Amini, Santur

2021-22 Faculty Artist Series
Jennifer Velva Bernstein Performance Hall
Sunday, Jan 16, 2022 at 2:30 PM (ET)

The Isabel Quartet returns to the stage with the premiere of a new work for santur and string quartet by Queen’s composer, John Burge, featuring Kingston virtuoso santur performer, Sadaf Amini. Titled, Shiraz, this one movement work is truly a multi-cultural fusion of the santur’s middle eastern hammered-dulcimer-like qualities, within the traditional framework of classical string quartet writing and includes opportunities for Sadaf to display her phenomenal talents as an improvisor. The concert begins with the Isabel Quartet’s continued presentation of another of the six Sun Quartets, Opus 20, by Haydn and ends with one of Beethoven’s most beloved quartets, Opus 59, No. 1, in F Major, the first of the three quartets known collectively as the Razumovsky Quartets, the set’s dedicatee and one of Beethoven’s great benefactors.
