Program: Debussy String Quartet in g minor, op. 10 Ottorino Respighi - il Tramonto, with guest artist Simone McIntosh Tickets: $25 online, $30 at the door; students $10 online, $15 at the door Ottorino Respighi's il Tramonto ("the Sunset"), a setting of Percy Bysshe Shelley's poem of the same name, tells the tragedy of a couple's young love cut short. The originality of this mini opera lies in the emphasis on a woman's strength and patience following her lover's death, and her dedication to living a full life despite the perpetual yearning for the same kind of peace her partner has found. Strength of character and vitality are also paramount in one of the most viscerally engaging works of the string quartet repertoire, Debussy's quartet in G minor. Though his only work for string quartet, it manages to be representative of the entire impressionist movement. Through four commanding movements of bold gestures, shimmering colors and tender melodies, Debussy masterfully weaves his sweeping and fantastical tale.
