Music at Oakmont presents March 12
The Telegraph Quartet was formed in 2013 with an equal passion for standard and contemporary chamber music repertoire. Described by the San Francisco Chronicle as “an incredibly valuable addition to the cultural landscape” and “powerfully adept … with a combination of brilliance and subtlety,” the Quartet was awarded the prestigious 2016 Walter W. Naumburg Chamber Music Award and the Grand Prize at the 2014 Fischoff Chamber Music Competition. In 2018 the ensemble released its first album, Into the Light, on the Centaur label. The recording features works by Anton Webern, Benjamin Britten, and Leon Kirchner.
The Telephone Quartet will perform at Berger Center on March 12 at 1:30 p.m.
Based in the San Francisco Bay area, the Quartet is currently on the chamber music faculty at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music as the Quartet-in-Residence. The group has given master classes at the SFCM Collegiate and Pre-College Divisions and at San Francisco State University through the Morrison Artist Series, as well as abroad at the Taipei National University of the Arts, the National Taiwan Normal University, and in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.
The Telegraph Quartet’s March 12 program will include works by Haydn, Britten, and Mendelssohn. For program notes and other details, visit www.musicatoakmont.org.
