Featuring Guest Artist . . Zuill Bailey, cello. . . . The Arianna Quartet is thrilled to welcome Grammy Award winning cellist Zuill Bailey back to the Touhill for an evening of music among friends! Anton Arensky's rhapsodic Quartet in A minor, Op.35 for violin, viola and two cellos opens the evening with a glowing lyricism and power that captures the essence of romantic expression at the end of the nineteenth century. The ASQ next performs Carlos Simon’s yearning “Elegy” for String Quartet, a piece of raw honesty that wrestles with the anger, fear and anguish associated social injustices that we have witnessed so acutely in recent years. Dedicated to the memory of Trayvon Martin, Eric Garner, and Michael Brown, Simon's "Elegy" is a testament of remembrance that also gives a sense of inspired hope for a better future. The ASQ and Mr. Bailey close the evening with a performance of Schubert’s famous String Quintet in C Major, an unparalleled, masterpiece that many consider to be the greatest piece of chamber music ever written. . .
