The Vega String Quartet Presents Music of Jewish Composers

  • Mendelssohn: Cello Sonata in D Major
  • Golijov: Tenebrae for String Quartet
  • Gershwin: Rhapsody in Blue (100th anniversary of its creation)

Music of Mendelssohn, Gershwin, and Golijov is performed by the Vega Quartet, cellist Charae Krueger, and William Ransom, piano.

Cellist Charae Krueger, Principal Cellist of the Atlanta Opera Orchestra and the Atlanta Ballet Orchestra and Professor of Cello at KSU performs Felix Mendelssohn’s brilliant Sonata in D Major with ECMSA Artistic Director William Ransom; the international award-winning Vega Quartet plays Osvaldo Golijov’s moving and timely “Tenebrae” (written in 2002 in response to violence in Israel); and Ransom plays the original solo piano version of George Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue”, celebrating the 100th year of it’s composition.

The Vega String Quartet, Quartet-in-Residence at Emory University, is cultivating a new generation of chamber music lovers through dynamic performances and innovative community engagement. The New York Times raved that "[the Quartet’s] playing had a kind of clean intoxication to it, pulling the listener along…the musicians took real risks in their music making" and the L.A. Times praised their “triumphant L.A. debut.” They concertize both nationally and internationally, most recently in Baltimore, Chicago, Nashville, Sacramento, Berlin, San Miguel, and the Brahmssaal in Vienna’s Musikverein. The Quartet's major performing projects at Emory have included performing the complete cycle of Beethoven quartets, as well as pairing Bach’s complete works for solo violin, viola and cello with the six Bartók quartets. Recent highlights include debuting at the 2023 Kneisel Hall Chamber Festival and opening the Emory Chamber Music Society of Atlanta’s 2023 - 24 season alongside Mark and Maggie O’Connor. The Vega’s 2023 - 2024 season will feature collaborations with flutist Ransom Wilson, cellist Zuill Bailey, and the Juilliard Quartet. Regular commissioners of new music, the quartet will be premiering Joel Thompson’s newest string quartet in March of 2024.
