4 pm Performance
The Hausmann Quartet and the Maritime Museum of San Diego partner to present this quarterly concert series aboard Berkeley - an 1898 steam ferryboat that operated for 60 years on San Francisco Bay.
Concerts aboard this National Historic Landmark explore the evolution of the string quartet through the lens of Joseph Haydn’s quartet cycle. The programming sets his works alongside those of master composers from our own era and stretching back to his musical ancestors, and each creative program includes commentary by musicologist Derek Katz and a cash bar.
September 17: Reason Gone Mad
Haydn’s humor is legendary and multi-faceted. Miniatures by Ana Sokolovic (Commedia dell’Arte I), Igor Stravinsky and George Antheil frame two of Haydn’s wittiest, funniest works, the “Joke” Quartet and circus-like opus 74/2, adding up to a concert embodying Groucho Marx’s definition of humor: “reason gone mad.”
