We're going BIG with the programming for this groupmuse! We don't want to STRING you along, so we'll tell you right away that we're excited for this program.

Many of us at Juilliard are returning to NYC now that our summer travels abroad to festivals are ending, so this groupmuse would bring us back in the rhythm of performing together again!

In the first half, we will perform all movements of the timeless string quartet by Dvorak composed during his time in the United States:

Antonín Dvořák
....STRING QUARTET No. 12 in F MAJOR, Op. 96 ("American") (1893)
(~25 min)


Mark Applebaum
....Aphasia (2010)
(~10 min)

Louis Andriessen
....WORKERS UNION (1975)
(~16 min)

For this last piece, we'll be joined by percussion and saxophone to venture into music that was written for "any loud sounding group of instruments." There are no specific pitches for each instrument, but everyone plays the notated rhythmic patterns. It is not easy to play the same rhythms completely together ...similar to how it is not easy to organize action together as a group.
