To open DACAMERA’s 36th season, Artistic Director Sarah Rothenberg brings together brilliant young talents for a musical conversation across multiple time periods.
The Isidore Quartet recently burst onto the chamber music scene, winning a prestigious 2023 Avery Fisher Career Grant and the 2022 Banff International String Quartet Competition. They make their Houston debut in a program featuring two extraordinary string quartets by Mozart and Mendelssohn – each composed before the composer’s 30th birthday – and a dazzling new work by Nicky Sohn, who is close in age to her distant contemporaries from the 18th and 19th centuries. Inspired by Miles Davis’s seminal recording of Bye-Bye Blackbird, Sohn’s quintet, composed for the occasion to feature pianist Sarah Rothenberg and the Isidore Quartet, has its world premiere.
