 String Theory  Concert 3  St. Paul's Episcopal Cathedral

Physics’ string theory holds that the fundamental unit of existence is a one-dimensional vibrating string.   Science writers use musical concepts often enough to translate the math that grounds string theory into terms the general public can understand.  ‘Harmony’ is used to explain mathematical relationships in sensory terms, and can be referred to as acoustical resonance, the result of a pattern of vibration.  Three quintets of vibrating strings made up the third concert offered this season by the Brightmusic Chamber Ensemble presented on Tuesday, January 23rd at St. Paul’s Episcopal Cathedral in Oklahoma City, at the heart of the program a single basset clarinet added to the mix for Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Quintet for Clarinet and Strings in A Major, K 581, and to open and close, string quintets inspired by America and its roots music, "String Circle" by Kenji Bunch and the String Quintet No. 3 in E-flat Major, Op 97 by Antonin Dvořák
