BABEL, featuring the Calidore String Quartet

Presented by Emerald City Music: Olympia’s home for chamber music performances. 

Friday, February 26 7:00pm:   When words fail, music speaks. The award-winning Calidore String Quartet pairs two quartets recently recorded for their newest album, Babel. These two works by Robert Schumann and Dmitri Shostakovich stem from bleak periods when each composer suffered, and overcame, depression. Their music transmits what occurs when music substitutes for language. In the case of Shostakovich, words aren’t enough to fill the void of forbidden speech. Schumann uses music to sing the name of his wife, Clara.

Filmed in Brooklyn, New York by film director Zac Nicholson. Available for viewing on February 26th, 2021 through March 18, 2021.
