Cypress Quartet

This Month's Best Classical Music Offerings: Edgar Meyer, Cypress String Quartet, and Kate Royal

In the mood for some classical? Here's what's on tap this month.

Cypress String Quartet

Contemporary music is a natural extension of older works, each one building on what came before. Devoted to adding to the contemporary canon, The Cypress String Quartet is performing its 12th annual Call and Response, featuring a new commissioned work by Jeffrey Cotton that was inspired by the other pieces in the program. 

Cotton’s Serenade for String Quartet responds to Bloch’s Landscapes, itself a response to the Nanook of the North craze of the time, and Debussy’s String Quartet, Op. 10, which he composed after hearing the Javanese Gamelan at the Paris Exposition in 1889.
