NOVA Chamber Music Series at UMFA for Conclusion of 2017-18 Gallery Series

The Fry Street Quartet returns to the magnificent G. W. Anderson Family Great Hall at the Utah Museum of Fine Arts for the final Gallery Series concert of NOVA’s 40th Anniversary season.

The remarkable and multi-faceted Fry Street Quartet performs Part IV in their thrilling four-concert cycle of the complete Bartók and Haydn opus 76 string quartets.

“The Fry Street Quartet has been an integral part of NOVA’s programming,” noted Jason Hardink, NOVA Artistic Director. “Their presence in Utah is a rare prize and we’re grateful for what they have done to energize the local music scene.”

Audiences will enjoy Haydn’s stirring String Quartet in G Major Opus 76, No. 1 and Bartok’s String Quartet No. 2 and No. 4. These pieces are sure to provide closure to this monumental cycle of the complete Bartók and Haydn opus 76 string quartets.

Robert Waters, first violinist of the Fry Street Quartet said, "The pairing of the late Haydn Op.76 quartets with the six Bartók quartets has been an absolute revelation.  We’re so excited to have these two titans of the genre meet, head-to-head, one last time!"

Members of the quartet will guide the listener through each of these exciting works with a short and engaging discussion before each piece.

“We love engaging visitors through many different senses, and NOVA is an ideal partner to bring live music into conversation with visual works of art,” stated Gretchen Dietrich, UMFA Executive Director.
