Arts@Midday: Enemies of the State
Friday, October 23, 2015, 12:15 PM - 1:00 PM
The DaPonte String Quartet, resident in Maine, will make St. Alban’s one of their stops this fall while on tour. The program includes Dmitri Shostakovich's String Quartet No. 8 and Erwin Schulhoff's String Quartet No. 1. Shostakovich defied the Stalinist regime that sought to oppress him, and Czech composer Schulhoff did not survive Hitler’s concentration camps to fully take his place in music history.
