Telegraph Quartet Performs Virtual Concert Presented by Music in Corrales
Beginning on Saturday, May 22, 2021 the Telegraph Quartet (Eric Chin and Joseph Maile, violins; Pei-Ling Lin, viola; Jeremiah Shaw, cello) is presented in a virtual performance by Music in Corrales. Tickets to access the performance are $15, available at www.musicincorrales.org/concert/telegraph-quartet. Registrants will be sent a private YouTube link to watch the performance and the video will remain online to watch through Sunday, May 30, 2021. There will be a separate 1-hour Q&A session via Zoom for ticket holders on Saturday, May 22 at 7:30pm MDT with members of the quartet.
The quartet’s program includes Beethoven’s String Quartet No. 1 in F Major, Op. 18, No. 1 and Brahms’ String Quartet No. 2 in A minor, Op. 51. Joseph Maile of the Telegraph Quartet says, “Both of these works represent each composer’s first public foray into the string quartet medium. Beethoven’s Op. 18 No. 1 is his ambitious, if slightly delayed, entry into the quartet medium as the vanguard of his set of six quartets. And Brahms’ wistful second string quartet is one of his two final products, of numerous discarded attempts – most likely with Beethoven metaphorically looking over his shoulder.”
