Jack Symonds, our 2015 featured composer, is coming to our concert for the première of his new work for solo cello,Schattensfere. In collaboration with Jack, we also have on the programAlexander von Zemlinsky's forty-minute wartime masterpiece, the String quartet no. 2 (1913-1915) and Panufnik's String quartet no. 3 (1990) of five miniatures, nicknamed "Wycinanki" after the Polish rustic art of papercuts.
