During its 15th season performing together, Chiara String Quartet is moving forward by taking a cue from the past. Harkening back to a tradition that is centuries old and still common among soloists, the quartet has adapted a new way of performing–without printed sheet music. For almost all of the quartet’s upcoming concerts, they’ll be performing by heart. After spending countless hours working toward playing their repertoire from memory, they now feel that the sheet music is a distraction to the performance, instead of an aid. This concert will feature Brahms’ String Quartet in A Minor, from their latest album Brahms by Heart.
