This is our 5th Groupmuse, but the 1st at our new event space, Noho Sound, a soundproofed and acoustically treated loft in lower Manhattan, designed specifically for live and recorded music.
The live performance will be followed by electronic and disco versions of the music performed, if they can be located on vinyl. If not, a digital download of William Orbit's EDM remix of Barber's Adagio for Strings will be played repeatedly for three hours, or until the last person leaves, whichever comes first. If four or more guests known to each other act inappropriately, Laibach's industrial cover of The Beatles' Let It Be will be played in its entirety.
We will be providing wine, music & good company.
Smoking and drinking is encouraged, but the former is banned during the actual performance so as not to annoy the musicians.
The Astor Place 6 train is across the street, as is the 8th street N/R station.
There is a parking garage downstairs.
What's the music?
It's a listening game!
C major vs. C minor:
Two keys that start on the same note but have different qualities.
Brahms vs. Haydn:
Two great string quartet composers, one of whom published 68 string quartets and the other only 3.
Only one way to find out - come and hear us play!
Haydn String Quartet in C major, Op. 20 No. 2
Brahms String Quartet No. 1 in C minor, Op. 51 No. 1
