TAILLEFERRE: String Quartet
GEORGE WALKER: String Quartet No. 1
BRAHMS: String Sextet No. 2 in G Major, Op 36
Tailleferre, the only woman to be included in Les Six (a group of innovative French composers) and George Walker, the first Black composer to win a Pulitzer, were both in their mid-20s when they wrote these string quartets. Brahms was only a few years older when he wrote this sextet. Each work is imbued with different youthful emotions that have helped keep them relevant and fresh.
Performers: Christina Bouey, Anthony Bracewell, Victoria Miskolczy, Kyle Armbrust, Rosemary Elliott, Elizabeth Simkin
