The Cramer Quartet Presents Haydn: Dialogues + UCC Harlo

  • Alchemical Studios - West 17th Street, New York, NY, USA Apt: 12th Floor

Join the Cramer Quartet, a period instrument string quartet that combines the world of historically informed performance with newly commissioned works exploring and expanding the sound world of gut strings, for their latest chapter of Haydn: Dialogues, a multi-year cycle combining Haydn’s 68 string quartets with sixteen new commissions by composers of marginalized identities. Each commission is an invitation for a composer to respond to Haydn’s string quartet oeuvre in the composer’s own musical voice. On December 7, they’ll perform 30 mengstaße, a new work by inti figgis-vizueta alongside Haydn’s Op. 71 No. 2 string quartet.

The second half of the program will feature a solo set from Annie Garlid, AKA UCC Harlo, who “stages sonic communions between the old and the new, contemplates contemporary relationships to the natural world, and casts music as mood. A classically-trained viola player and singer, she reworks her own performances of medieval, Renaissance, and baroque music or begins from scratch, infiltrating hauntological new-age ambience with liturgical choral riffs, off-the-cuff recordings, and fur-soft ASMR vocals.”
