The Hausmann Quartet Presents Loss And Renewal At MMSD

Haydn Voyages: Music at the Maritime Museum of San Diego is a quarterly concert series aboard Berkeley – an 1898 steam ferryboat that operated for 60 years on San Francisco Bay. Concerts aboard this National Historic Landmark, docked in downtown San Diego next to Star of India, explore the evolution of the string quartet through the lens of Joseph Haydn’s quartet cycle. The programming sets his works alongside those of master composers from our own era and stretching back to his musical ancestors. As the father of the string quartet and one of history’s most innovative composers, Haydn is an ideal guide to this exploration of some of the most powerful, creative music ever written.

The Hausmann Quartet Presents Loss and Renewal. This concert spans the full range of our human experience: from the unspeakable tragedy of losing a child and facing one’s own impending death after a long battle with poor health, contrasted with the sense of hope and renewal that comes with the birth of another child, and the unexpected recovery after a long illness. Beethoven’s opus 132 Quartet is one if his final masterpieces, and guides the narrative arc of this program. A world premiere by Ryan Carter will explore similar themes, and Haydn’s quirky opus 17/1 Quartet completes this emotionally potent evening. This concert is also the annual celebration of KPBS’ sponsorship of Haydn Voyages.

Each creative program will also include informative and entertaining commentary during the performance from noted UC Santa Barbara musicologist, Derek Katz.
