Kontras Quartet in Recital: Reverence

Elmhurst University Irion Hall- Buik Recital Hall, 190 S Prospect Ave, Elmhurst, IL


Reverence: music of nature and the sublime

This program reminds us of themes of Romantic-era literature: the natural world, the transcendent, and the awe we feel in contemplation of both. From the shores of distant Nordic islands, through sacred halls echoing spirituals, this music invites us to reflect and ponder the bigger forces at play in our lives.

Program: Porter - In Monasterio Brahms - String Quartet #2 Garrop - String Quartet #1 Tillis - selections from Spiritual Fantasy No. 12 Trad. arr. Danish String Quartet - selections from Last Leaf

Artwork: The Monk by the Sea, Caspar David Friedrich, 1810
