In a new project by the Alexander String Quartet and pianist Joyce Yang, Samuel Adams, composer in residence with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, explores the resonance of Mozart with his own unique musical voice. Adams is curious to know what is rhetorically kept (or lost) when a classical form comes forth "into the flesh" out of context; and these award-winning master performers weave an exciting musical tapestry.
An unusually fine group — musically, technically, in just about any way one wants to view it.
