Praised for their “intensity and bravado” (Third Coast Review), the Callisto Quartet’s Ernst Stiefel residency continues this year with two appearances that spotlight emerging composers and the classic works that influenced them. In this performance, you’ll hear a world premiere by Nathaniel Heyder, who was inspired by Brahms’ Third String Quartet, which was itself modeled after the Mozart Quartet also on the program. Above all else, the three works share an unmistakable joy of life and nature.
