The Opera House at Boothbay Harbor
The DaPonte String Quartet will perform their first summer series program, “Summer Goulash” on July 17 in Boothbay Harbor.
The program has a Hungarian flavor, as the Quartet continue their year-long exploration of the works of Bela Bartok, with a performance of the Hungarian composer’s String Quartet No. 3, Sz. 85, a work strongly influenced by the folk music Bartok collected obsessively.
Other works on the program include Brahms’s String Quartet No. 3 in B flat Major Op. 67—his last quartet, a bright, sunny and perfectly crafted work; and Franz Haydn’s String Quartet in C Major Op.20 No.2, one of the works that led him to be dubbed the “father of the string quartet.”
