Del Sol Quartet with Composers from the Gabriela Lena Frank Academy

  • C: Landing 751 47th Ave San Francisco, CA 94121 (map)

Bonus event featuring world premieres of 7 new works by the composer fellows of the Gabriela Lena Frank Academy and the Del Sol String Quartet.  

Hailed by Gramophone as “masters of all musical things they survey,” the Del Sol String Quartet shares living music with an ever-growing community of adventurous listeners. Fascinated by the feedback loop between social change, technology, and artistic innovation, the San Francisco-based ensemble is a leading force in 21st century chamber music whether introducing Ben Johnston’s microtonal Americana at the Library of Congress, exploring Andean soundscapes with Gabriela Lena Frank and traditional musicians, deconstructing Ruth Crawford’s radical experimental processes with East Bay schoolchildren, or rocking Mason Bates’ techno grooves in his San Francisco dance party.
