Joy of mu­sic: the Szy­manowski Quar­tet

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS -

The Szy­manowski Quar­tet, a Pol­ish cham­ber en­sem­ble founded in 1995, pays a re­turn visit through the graces of Santa Fe Pro Mu­sica. All four pieces on the group’s pro­gram have a cheer­ful bent: Mozart’s rol­lick­ing Diver­ti­mento in F ma­jor (K. 138); Szy­manowski’s Noc­turne and Taran­tella (Op. 28) — and this name­sake group should know a thing or two about in­ter­pret­ing his mu­sic; Haydn’s Quar­tet in E-flat ma­jor (Op. 33, No. 2), known as “The Joke” and never fail­ing to stir lis­ten­ers’ ris­i­bil­i­ties; and Dvorˇák’s String Quar­tet in A-flat ma­jor (Op. 105), his folk-in­fused fi­nal con­tri­bu­tion to the genre. The per­for­mance takes place at 3 p.m. on Sun­day, Feb. 8, at St. Fran­cis Au­di­to­rium (New Mex­ico Mu­seum of Art, 107 W. Palace Ave.). Tick­ets ($20 to $65, with dis­counts avail­able) may be pur­chased through Tick­ets Santa Fe at the Lensic (505-988-1234, www.tick­etssantafe.org). — James M. Keller
