A ROCO string quartet made up of Maureen Nelson, Cece Belcher, Matt Dane and Richard Belcher, with guest pianist Eliza Ching, performs Schubert’s String Trio in B flat, Beethoven’s Violin Sonata No. 9, The Kreutzer Sonata and Janacek’s String Quartet No. 1. “For me, the connection between Beethoven, Tolstoy and Janacek is that each artist was urgently obsessed with exquisite precision in meaning,” Dane said. “When I read Tolstoy or play either Beethoven or Janacek, I have the clear feeling that no note or word, no musical or written suggestion, is casual. Everything matters vitally.”
The event is part of ROCO’s Unchambered series, which brings classical small ensembles to unusual venues around Houston. Artistic Director and ROCO founder Alecia Lawyer enjoys the relationship between the modern accessibility of books and availability of music.
