Live Q&A Session via Zoom on May 22 at 7:30pm MDT
Beginning on Saturday, May 22, 2021 the Telegraph Quartet (Eric Chin and Joseph Maile, violins; Pei-Ling Lin, viola; Jeremiah Shaw, cello) is presented in a virtual performance by Music in Corrales. Tickets to access the performance are $15, available at www.musicincorrales.org/concert/telegraph-quartet. Registrants will be sent a private YouTube link to watch the performance and the video will remain online to watch through Sunday, May 30, 2021. There will be a separate 1-hour Q&A session via Zoom for ticket holders on Saturday, May 22 at 7:30pm MDT with members of the quartet.
The quartet’s program includes Beethoven’s String Quartet No. 1 in F Major, Op. 18, No. 1 and Brahms’ String Quartet No. 2 in A minor, Op. 51. Joseph Maile of the Telegraph Quartet says, “Both of these works represent each composer’s first public foray into the string quartet medium. Beethoven’s Op. 18 No. 1 is his ambitious, if slightly delayed, entry into the quartet medium as the vanguard of his set of six quartets. And Brahms’ wistful second string quartet is one of his two final products, of numerous discarded attempts – most likely with Beethoven metaphorically looking over his shoulder.”
During the pandemic, the Telegraph Quartet has given virtual performances presented by San Francisco Conservatory of Music’s Faculty Series, SF Music Day 2020, Noontime Concerts, Noe Music, and Crowden Music Center’s Sundays@4 Concert Series. In November 2020, the Telegraph Quartet produced ChamberFEAST, its first chamber music festival in Taiwan, born out of Telegraph’s mission to spread music through performance, education, and audience engagement. It was presented by Revolving Gate Music and co-hosted by the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. During the festival, the Telegraph Quartet worked intensively with university and high school music students throughout Taiwan in various activities including chamber music coachings, performance classes, masterclasses, lectures, and sight-reading sessions, culminating with a student performance. Among these students were some of the Telegraph’s very own from the San Francisco Conservatory, who stayed home in Taiwan due to the pandemic.
