The program features Haydns Sun Quartet Op. 20 No. 2 as well as Mozarts Spring Quartet K. 387, the first of the Haydn Quartets which were dedicated to the elder composer.

Praised for their rich sound, effortless command, and impeccable phrasing, this nimble young ensemble takes its name from Wilhelm Cramer (1746-1799), who at the end of the 18th Century enjoyed a brilliant multifaceted career as Londons leading violinist and the citys first major string quartet leader.Based in New York City, The Cramer Quartet is comprised of four of the most accomplished players in the historical performance field today Jessica Park and Chiara Fasani Stauffer, violins; Keats Dieffenbach, viola; and Shirley Hunt, cello. The group holds degrees from the Juilliard School, Basel Hochschule fr Musik, New England Conservatory, Northwestern University, Schola Cantorum Basiliensis, University of Southern California, and Yale School of Music. Individually, the quartets members bring decades of performance practice study to the stage as well as a wealth of experience as chamber musicians, soloists, and principal orchestral players. Each of them can be found performing with the nations top early music ensembles, including Boston Baroque, Handel and Haydn Society, Apollo's Fire, New York Baroque Incorporated, Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra, Washington Bach Consort, Trinity Baroque Orchestra; and with distinguished conductors and soloists, such as Richard Egarr, Robert Levin, Masaki Suzuki, Aisslinn Nosky, Monica Huggett, Kristian Bezuidenhout, and Eric Hoeprich.Armed with a keen sense of curiosity and passion for research, The Cramer Quartet invites 21st Century audiences to join them for a fresh look at the string quartets Golden Age.BACH TO THE FUTURE CONCERT SERIES:A SUNDAY SERIES OF BEAUTIFUL MUSIC IN THE VILLAGE!Attend individual concerts for inspiration every Sunday afternoon -- or, subscribe to our series, to support the work of the Foundation for the Revival of Classical Culture; Its Bach To The Future Music/Science Program for Students; and the new Foundation for the Revival of Classical Culture Youth Chorus.
