More by four: Jo­hannes String Quar­tet

Pasatiempo - - On Stage -

This week the Jo­hannes String Quar­tet ap­pears at the Santa Fe Cham­ber Mu­sic Fes­ti­val with five works that show their adapt­abil­ity in a broad range of the quar­tet lit­er­a­ture. On Sun­day and Mon­day, Aug. 10 and 11 — at 6 p.m. on both evenings — the group per­forms Mozart’s D-ma­jor String Quar­tet (K. 575) and We­ber’s Clar­inet Quin­tet (with clar­inetist David Shifrin) in a pro­gram that also spot­lights other mu­si­cians in Mozart’s G-ma­jor Duo for Vi­o­lin and Vi­ola and Haydn’s can­tata Ari­anna a

Naxos (with mezzo-so­prano Sasha Cooke). On Tues­day, Aug. 12, at noon, the four­some of­fers an imag­i­na­tively con­structed pro­gram con­sist­ing of Kurtág’s Hom­mage à Mi­hály An­drás, 12 Mi­croludes

for String Quar­tet, a po­ten­tially prickly col­lec­tion of minia­tures from 1977; We­bern’s sim­i­larly com­pressed Six Ba­gatelles for String Quar­tet from 1913; and Brahms’ in­tense String Quar­tet No. 1 — the Brahms quar­tets be­ing the fo­cus of one of the group’s forth­com­ing record­ings. Per­for­mances take place in the St. Fran­cis Au­di­to­rium of the New Mex­ico Mu­seum of Art, 107 W. Palace Ave. For tick­ets ($55-$75 for Aug. 10-11, $20-$25 for Aug. 12) call the fes­ti­val at 505-982-1890 or 888-221-9836, ext. 102, or con­tact www.tick­etssantafe.org (505-988-1234). — J.M.K.
