22/23 Hop Presents

Apple Hill String Quartet Spring 2023


Inspired by Dartmouth's Mexican Repertoire Initiative, the evening begins with Sonoralia by Emmanuel Arias y Luna, a piece that will have you humming and dancing in your seat. Next, Silvestre Revueltas also incorporated Mexican folk tunes and rhythms in his music, but the sound world of his String Quartet No. 1 couldn't be more different from Arias y Luna. You'll want to experience this amazing pairing. The concert then travels ahead to the 20th century with Chinese American composer Thomas Oboe Lee's Morango... Almost a Tango and Japanese composer Sato Matsui's Amaterasu. The evening concludes with Joseph Haydn's String Quartet in E major, Op. 17/1.

Dr. Brian Messier, Director of Bands at Dartmouth College, will moderate a conversation with the quartet after the performance.

Called "dashing and extraordinary" by The Strad Magazine, the Apple Hill String Quartet are the Artistic Directors and resident musicians at the Apple Hill Center for Chamber Music, winner of the CMAcclaim award from Chamber Music America. The Quartet serves as the Music Directors for Apple Hill's Summer Chamber Music Workshop in Nelson, New Hampshire, cultivating connection and understanding among people of diverse backgrounds, cultures, playing levels and ages through music performance and education centered around the values of acceptance, inclusivity, creative expression and encouragement.
The Quartet has collaborated with members of the Brentano String Quartet, Silk Road Ensemble, Dorian Wind Quintet, Hirsch-Pinkas Piano Duo, New York Philharmonic and Community MusicWorks in Providence, Rhode Island. Members of the Quartet have received degrees from Oberlin Conservatory, the Juilliard School, Peabody Conservatory, New England Conservatory of Music, Manhattan School of Music, SUNY Stonybrook and a Fulbright Fellowship to London, England.
