On Feb. 7 at 7:30 p.m., also in Karl Geiringer Hall of the University of California, Santa Barbara, the music department will host the Ciompi Quartet, Duke University’s resident string quartet, in a concert featuring flutist and UCSB Music Department Chair Jill Felber, on Amy Beach’s “Theme and Variations for Flute and String Quartet, Op. 80,” and a performance of Professor Emeritus Joel Feigin’s “Mosaic in Two Panels” for string quartet.
Said Felber of the piece she will be performing, “Amy Beach, one of America’s first truly successful female composers of art music, used her own song, ‘An Indian Lullaby,’ for the theme of the quintet. This rarely played work is a gem for the flute and string quartet literature.”
Tickets are $10 general admission, $5 non-UCSB students with ID and free for UCSB students with ID and for children under 12.
