Fallbrook Music Society presents ‘Four Women for Women’

FALLBROOK – Continuing its successful Classical Sundays format, Fallbrook Music Society celebrates women composers in classical music with Quartet Nouveau, an all-female string quartet performing 3 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 24 in the Fallbrook Library.

Based in San Diego, Quartet Nouveau performs regularly as an ensemble in residence at the California Chamber Orchestra in Temecula. Known for their energizing and deeply emotional performances, Quartet Nouveau has earned a reputation by embracing and performing many lesser known works, in addition to standard quartet repertoire and world premieres. The Fallbrook Library concert is no exception.

“Fallbrook Music Society is thrilled to present ‘Four Women for Women,’” executive director Ann Murray said. “This concert features four incredibly talented young women performing the works of Fanny Mendelssohn, Elena Ruehr and Ruth Crawford, all of whom have gone unrecognized for centuries and whose accomplishments are just being now discovered. This is truly one-of-a-kind performance for our community.”

The members of Quartet Nouveau all graduated with master’s and doctoral degrees from the nation’s top universities including Eastman School of Music, University of California San Diego, Cleveland Institute of Music and Florida State University to name a few.

“We are also especially delighted to have Quartet Nouveau with us as they are one of the few music ensembles that truly share and embrace our mission of music education,” Murray said.

Quartet Nouveau’s educational program called ‘Quartet Lab’ places young string students into string quartets. These students receive coaching sessions by members of Quartet Nouveau as they learn the intricacies of string quartet playing.

The performance is free and open to the general public. No tickets are required. A program preview begins 2:30 p.m. for audience members to meet the musicians and to learn about the repertoire and the lives of the female composers whose works are featured on the program.
