The Arneis Quartet launches its Kaisahan Initiative with a program of works by some of their favorite composers.  Rising arpeggios mark the magical opening of Haydn’s String Quartet in B flat major, Op. 76 No. 4, inspiring its English nickname “Sunrise”.  Joan Tower explores the many ways in which music can “go up” in Rising; flautist Vanessa Holroyd will be the quartet’s expedition partner on this musical adventure.  Arneis first discovered Grazyna Bacewicz’s String Quartet No. 4 when it coached the work at the BU Tanglewood Institute String Quartet Workshop and is excited to add it to their repertoire this season. Bacewicz won frist prize for the work at the International Composers’ Competition in Liege in 1951, one of the many highlights of her rising career.
