Moravian Faculty String Quartet to Perform Beloved Classics – Oct. 17

BETHLEHEM, Pa. October 13, 2004, 2004—Several distinguished Moravian faculty members will perform an afternoon of classical strings on Sunday, October 17 at 4 p.m. in Foy Concert Hall. The string quartet features Linda Kistler and Inna Eyzerovich on violins, Aundrey Mitchell on viola, and David Moulton on cello.

Selections from Robert Schumann, German-born Romantic virtuoso, will be included in the quartet’s repertoire. Schumann’s poetic, composition style and his critically keen observations of his contemporaries in the music world, made him a well-known figure during both his life in the first half of the 19th century and his music lives on to the present time.

Works by Dmitri Shostakovich, a Russian composer in the Modern style, will be performed. Heavily influenced by the revolutions and social upheaval in his country during the first half of the twentieth century, Shostakovich was known for his dramatic and often controversial compositions.

Pieces by Aaron Copland, America’s premiere composer for nearly four decades, will be performed. Beloved for his simple, audience-appealing, and yet meaningful style, Copland was a decidedly American-influenced composer whose work often mirrored distinct American traditions, trends, and folktales.

The concert will take place in Foy Concert Hall, located on the Priscilla Payne Hurd Campus, on the corner of Church and Main Streets in Bethlehem. Tickets are $12 general admission, $6 for students, seniors, and children 12 and under. For more information, please call 610-861-1650 or email music@moravian.edu.
