PCAM 2021: Noree Chamber Soloists
October 24, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
St. John's Episcopal Church, 101 Chapel St, Portsmouth, NH 03801, USA
The Noree Chamber Soloists are an elite roster of New York-based young classical musicians, who themselves are on prestigious world stages and winners of top international competitions. They team together to perform chamber music programs that have won such praise as “musicality of high order" and "exquisite sensitivity" from the New York Concert Review.
In October, four Noree musicians will perform in Portsmouth: Emilie-Anne Gendron, violin; Emma Frucht, violin; Sung Jin Lee, viola; and Yi Qun Xu, cello. The group will be performing two of the most beloved examples of the string quartet repertoire: Mozart's Dissonance Quartet in C Major, one of the six quartets dedicated to Joseph Hayden, which earned its nickname from its slow and chromatic introduction; and Dvorak's American Quartet in F Major, written during the composer's time in the U.S. with open, simple character based on its unifying pentatonic scale and frequently identified with American folk music.
