What would you want to hear if you were given carte blanche for a concert?
Composer In Residence Jocelyn Morlock has chosen an hour-long work by her late teacher and mentor Nikolai Korndorf. What makes her choose Korndor’s Quartet? She writes:
“Nikolai’s music was the most emotionally intense music I’ve heard, and it was also deeply logical. Architecturally, he could build to climactic points without the listener necessarily knowing where he would end up. He had total control of his material, but the journey through his music never feels like an intellectual exercise.”
“His string quartet is a cathartic emotional journey. Written in the form of a requiem, it explores loss, redemption and ecstasy.”
Korndorf’s Quartet is a piece of exceptional poignancy and intellectual power. Its performance will be a night to remember; book your tickets today.
