Parlay’s first event of 2014 was an intimate evening with the Cypress String Quartet. The group delighted us with a number of musical treats spanning composers like Dvorak and Shostakovich to commissioned pieces from the relatively unknown. Pictures from the event and more information about the group–including future performances–is below.
About Cypress String Quartet
Known for its elegant performances, the Cypress String Quartet (Cecily Ward, violin; Tom Stone, violin; Ethan Filner, viola; and Jennifer Kloetzel, cello) has been praised by Gramophone for its “artistry of uncommon insight and cohesion,” and its sound has been called “beautifully proportioned and powerful” by The Washington Post. The Cypress Quartet was formed in San Francisco in 1996, and during its initial rehearsals the group created a signature sound through intense readings of J.S. Bach’s Chorales. Built up from the bottom register of the quartet and layered like a pyramid, the resulting sound is clear and transparent, allowing the texture of the music to be discerned immediately. – See more at: http://cypressquartet.com/about/biography/#sthash.fIqqNeoD.dpuf
