Women’s Suffrage: A Musical Retrospective
Always popular with Music in the Park Series regulars, the outstanding Pacifica Quartet opens the 42nd season of chamber music in Saint Paul’s St Anthony Park with a program to celebrate the musical voices of women composers spanning over 150 years – from Fanny Mendelssohn’s Quartet in E-flat written in 1834, to Voices, written by Jennifer Higdon in 1993 for the Pacifica Quartet.  Known for its virtuosity and exuberant performance style, the Pacifica Quartet recently celebrated twenty-five years of outstanding music-making.  The Quartet’s many recording projects include a Grammy Award-winning recording of music by Elliott Carter. Of their recording of the Shostakovich String Quartet cycle, London’s Daily Telegraph declared “the playing is nothing short of phenomenal”.  The members of the Pacifica Quartet live in Bloomington, Indiana, where they serve as quartet-in-residence and full-time faculty members at Indiana University’s Jacobs School of Music.  The Pacifica Quartet has been a frequent guest of the Music in the Park Series, and we are excited to have them back to open the 2020-2021 season.
