Jacaranda’s next concert, on March 8 at 8:00 p.m., will be held at UCLA’s Schoenberg Hall, which is waiving admission to honor Jacaranda’s 10th anniversary. Jacaranda’s inaugural season featured an adventurous young string quartet known as Denali, which played with the series until 2010. Denali was succeeded by Lyris as quartet in residence. This free “Continental Harmony” concert will be entirely devoted to the Lyris Quartet, playing 20th-century American string quartet repertoire spanning 80 years. For the occasion, Lyris will open with their debut performance of the String Quartet No. 2 by Charles Ives (1911-13), followed by a Jacaranda signature work from 1973, String Quartet No. 4, “Amazing Grace,” by Ben Johnston. String Quartet No. 5 by Philip Glass (1991), a Lyris specialty, will be followed with String Quartet No. 3 by Erich Wolfgang Korngold.
Composed in Los Angeles at the end of WWII, Korngold’s Quartet No. 3 was performed by Denali in its final season, and will also be performed by Lyris for the first time. The quartet was premiered at UCLA Royce Hall in 1946. Fearing that his film music would be forgotten, Korngold recycled themes from “Devotion” (1943) about the Bronte Sisters, the war themed “Between Two Worlds” (1944), and the classic “The Sea Wolf” (1941) with Edward G. Robinson, Ida Lupino and John Garfield.
Jacaranda is devoting “Continental Harmony” to the string quartet, for the first time, in recognition of its importance to Jacaranda’s programming.
The UCLA Music Library will host this free concert, underwritten by the UCLA Music Library’s Christine and Hugo Davise Fund for Contemporary Music, at UCLA’s Schoenberg Hall, 445 Charles E. Young Drive East, Los Angeles, CA 90024.
