The performance, set for Sunday, April 23 at 5pm at the Mount Tamalpais United Methodist Church, features Marc Danel and Gilles Millet on violin, Vlad Bogdanas on viola and Yovan Markovitch on cello. The quartet is well known for "their bold, concentrated interpretations of the string quartet cycles of Haydn, Beethoven, Schubert, Shostakovich, and Weinberg," according to MV Chamber Music Society producers. "The other part of their musical force lies in the collaboration with major contemporary composers such as Rihm, Lachenmann, Gubaidulina, Dusapin Jörg Widmann and Bruno Mantovani."
The Quatuor Danel concert program will include Debussy, Quartet in G; Mieczyslaw Weinberg, Quartet No. 5; and Beethoven, Quartet in B-flat, op. 130, with the Finale.
