On a Positive Note: The Alexander String Quartet Bridges Distance with Music

The Alexander String Quartet was disappointed when stay-at-home rules kept them from performing a long-awaited performance of Haydn’s Seven Last Words of Christ in their hometown of San Francisco. But they found a way to record it and share it both with their intended audience, and those at Baruch Performing Arts Center, where they were scheduled to be at their annual residency this week. The quartet’s performance of Haydn’s Seven Last Works will be streamed today - April 22 - at 7:30 pm, and the documentary Con Moto, which follows the quartet on a tour of Poland, will begin streaming Wednesday, April 23, at 2:45 pm.

 

Fred Lifsitz, a violinist in the quartet, discusses the recording and life as a quartet during a quarantine.
