“The Fry Street Quartet has been an integral part of NOVA’s programming,” noted Jason Hardink, NOVA Artistic Director. “Their presence in Utah is a rare prize and we’re grateful for what they have done to energize the local music scene.”
These pieces are will provide closure to this monumental cycle of the complete Bartók and Haydn quartets.
Robert Waters, first violinist of the Fry Street Quartet said, “The pairing of the late Haydn Op.76 quartets with the six Bartók quartets has been an absolute revelation. We’re so excited to have these two titans of the genre meet, head-to-head, one last time!”
Members of the quartet will guide you through each of these exciting works with a short and engaging discussion before each piece.
“We love engaging visitors through many different senses, and NOVA is an ideal partner to bring live music into conversation with visual works of art,” stated Gretchen Dietrich, Utah Museum of Fine Arts Executive Director.
