About This Performance

Making its PCMS debut, the Momenta Quartet is an ensemble that champions contemporary music while remaining committed to the classics. The NYC-based group performs and records widely and has commissioned several quartets, two of which are included on this program: a world premiere by recent Curtis Institute graduate Teddy Poll and Sin tiempo, a lush and energetic work by Bolivian-British composer Agustín Fernández.

Poll: String Quartet, Suite Sicilienne [World Premiere/PCMS Commission in honor of Robert Capanna]
Singleton: Quartet No. 3, Somehow We Can [Philadelphia Premiere]
Fernández: Quartet No. 2, Sin tiempo [Philadelphia Premiere]
Schulhoff: String Sextet
