Eric Chin, violin, Joseph Maile, violin, Pei-Ling Lin, viola and Jeremiah Shaw, cello.
Yesterday I attended a concert at California State University Sacramento by the Telegraph Quartet, made up of Joseph Maile, violin, Eric Chin, violin, Pei-Ling Lin, viola and Jeremiah Shaw, cello. Though they graduated from four different schools in four different states, they now are based in San Francisco--thus the Telegraph Quartet name. They played:
Mozart's String Quartet No 16 in E-flat, one of the Haydn quartets, and
Schubert's Death and the Maiden Quartet.
As an encore they played a movement by Benjamin Britten. Such incredibly passionate playing I cannot think I have ever heard. It is wonderful to think there are still young people who feel such emotion for Mozart and Schubert. These are familiar works played with unfamiliar enthusiasm. Viva.
