The Ives Quartet has captivated audiences from San Francisco to New York, Taiwan to London. Inspired by the passionate, artistic commitment and unique temperament of American composer Charles Ives (1874–1954), the Ives Quartet creates powerful live-music experiences through the presentation of fresh and informed interpretations of a carefully curated repertory to American and international audiences. The Quartet presents a regular series of concerts throughout the year in San Francisco, San Jose, and on the Peninsula and appears in noted chamber music series and festivals nationwide.
The repertoire combines established masterworks with underappreciated gems, neglected scores of early 20th century America, and specially commissioned new pieces. Their show in Point Reyes will feature: Haydn Quartet in E-flat Major, Opus 50/3; Porter Quartet No. 3; Schubert Quartet in D m., D810.
