The Telegraph Quartet presents its fall quartet-in-residence recital at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music in Sol Joseph Recital Hall on October 23. A very late chamber work of Haydn's, his String Quartet in F Major Op. 77/2 shows the composer at his most magnanimous and noble in spirit. Berg's String Quartet Op. 3, in comparison, is the work of a composer breaking the bonds of his student self into his first astoundingly mature work. The program concludes with Britten's String Quartet No. 2 in C Major, using ancient techniques viewed through a modern lens to commemorate Henry Purcell's death.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
