SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS -- The Morrison Artists Series at San Francisco State University on September 17 enters its 62nd year of providing chamber music concerts with a program featuring the University’s own resident ensemble, the Alexander String Quartet. Mozart’s String Quartet No. 22 is on the agenda, as is Shostakovich’s String Quartet No. 9 and the Bay Area premiere of Tarik O’Regan’s Gradual.
A pre-concert lecture, also free, takes place an hour before each program, which in subsequent months will bring appearances by the Telegraph Quartet, the Verona String Quartet, the Zephyros Winds, the Horszowski Trio, Quator Van Kuijk and the New Millennium Ensemble. Free tickets become available three weeks prior to each concert.
