The American String Quartet

 

 from Chamber Music in Oklahoma!

 

Celebrating 56 years of bringing nationally and internationally recognized chamber music ensembles to Oklahoma City, Chamber Music in Oklahoma is a non-profit civic organization begun in 1960.  Made up of volunteers and sustained by the support of its members, audiences and a number of community entities the series offers a five-concert season held on Sundays at 4:00pm from October through April at Christ the King Catholic Church in Oklahoma City.  

Regarded as one of the world’s foremost quartets, the American String Quartet celebrates its 40th year this season with a laudable history of concerts, educational residencies and recordings.   Critics and colleagues hold the ensemble in high esteem and many of today’s leading artists and composers seek out the Quartet for collaborations including George Tsontakis, who wrote his String Quartet 7.5 "Maverick" for the ensemble in 2015.  That work, premiered in September at the Maverick Concerts in Woodstock, New York, the longest running chamber music series in the US, opened the second concert presented this season by Chamber Music in Oklahoma on Sunday, November 15th, the program also featured the String Quartet No. 2, Op 17 of Bela Bartok in 1917 and the String Quartet in F Major, Op 59, No. 1, the first of the Razumovsky Quartets of Ludwig van Beethoven.
