About This Performance

The Jerry & Bernice Rubenstein Young Artist Performance

Praised for their “vibrant performance” and “sincere expressivity” (SF Classical Voice), the Thalea Quartet debuts with a program dedicated to the genius of African-American composer Florence Price. Five Folksongs in Counterpoint is rooted in the American spiritual tradition, reflecting Price’s cultural heritage in the Deep South, while the chamber version of her Piano Concerto in One Movement reveals Price’s exceptional gift for crafting compelling melodies, then spinning them into artful variations and developments.
