Illuminations: Del Sol Quartet
Del Sol Quartet
Friday, March 1, 2019
Winifred Smith Hall
San Francisco’s critically acclaimed Del Sol String Quartet presents a program focusing on young Iranian and Iranian-American composers, including works by Gity Razaz, Elnaz Seyedi, Nasim Khorassani, and Iman Habibi, as well as three UCI graduate students, Niloufar Shiri, Adib Ghorbani, and Hesam Abedini. Del Sol will also perform Moving Houses by UCI professor Lukas Ligeti, and Ben Johnston’s String Quartet No. 4 Amazing Grace. In Johnston’s overwhelmingly inventive composition, the well-loved European hymn resonates with just-intonation intervals.
Free admission with registration.
Support for this performance is provided by UCI Illuminations and the Jordan Center for Persian Studies & Culture.
