Intimate Letters

Join UMSL’s internationally acclaimed Arianna String Quartet for our March virtual “First Mondays with the ASQ!” This one-of-a kind interdisciplinary concert series offers audience members a rare behind the scenes look into the craft and artistry of the string quartet, and an opportunity for informal, direct discussion and interaction with the members of the Arianna String Quartet, as they examine the dynamic process of interpretation, live performance, and connections between classical music and our world.

For this second event in the spring series The ASQ devotes an evening to exploring Leos Janacek’s supercharged thriller, “Intimate Letters”, the second of his two string quartets from 1928. Driven by furious passion, hope, fear and nostalgia, Janacek’s masterpiece captures the essence of his 700 love letters chronicling his insatiable love and devotion for a woman 37 years his junior. Join the Arianna Quartet as they take you on a tour of this visceral, electrifying sound experience!
