SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE -- All stringed instruments sound beautiful, but not all stringed instruments are beautiful in the same way. There’s a world of expressive difference between the soulful rasp of a violin or cello and the rapturous plink of a harp. That’s one of the things that make the combination of those instrumental forces, though rare, such a piquant blend. Among the composers who have written for string quartet and harp are Debussy and his French compatriot André Caplet, whose works are featured on the joint recital by the Amphion Quartet and harpist Bridget Kibbey. Amphion Quartet and Bridget Kibbey: 8pm. Friday, February 19. Free. McKenna Theatre, San Francisco State University.
