Tanglewood Music Center Chamber Concerts Highlights of the String Quartet Seminar Hosted by Norman Fischer, with special guest Astrid Schween

July 5 @ 10:00 AM - 11:30 PM

Highlights of the String Quartet Seminar

Hosted by Norman Fischer, with special guest Astrid Schween

Each summer, TMC String Fellows begin their Tanglewood journey with the String Quartet Seminar, an intensive workshop exploring landmarks of the repertoire through coachings, masterclasses, and a marathon performance of three concerts over two days—the quality of which belies the fact that these musicians have been playing together for little more than a week. Featuring performances from 2016 to 2019, this broadcast exhibits the seminar’s comprehensive scope, from Haydn, who established the basic syntax of the genre, and Beethoven, who redefined its narrative capabilities; through the Romantic era to Alban Berg’s pithy modernism, and including an example of more recent vintage in Pulitzer Prize-winning TMC faculty member John Harbison.
