      HSQ Chamber Series: Modal Meditations

      The final concert of the HSQ season, Modal Meditations, features three works each exploring the powerful worlds of modal harmonies. Originally scored as incidental music for an adaptation of Samuel Becketts play of the same name, Philip Glass second quartet, Company, was written in 1983. In quintessential Glassian fashion, the works seems to shimmer in and out of existence as it undulates between major and minor. Beethovens Op. 132, one of the great works of the quartet repertoire, centers around its monumental 4th movement, written after a period of serious illness towards the end of the composers life. When his strength returned, Beethoven wrote a Holy song of thanksgiving of a convalescent to the Deity, in the Lydian mode, a title the composer gave to the works profound fourth movement. The concert will also include a world premiere by Music Havens own Resident Musician Patrick Doane. Modal Meditations Beethoven op. 132 Philip Glass Quartetsatz / Quartet #2 Doane Meditations
