San Francisco-based Friction Quartet exists to modernize the chamber music experience and expand the string quartet repertoire. Friction achieves this mission by commissioning new works, curating imaginative programs, collaborating with artists, and presenting interactive educational outreach.
They gave their Carnegie Hall debut as part of the Kronos Quartet Workshop in 2016, and returned in 2018 to perform George Crumbs Black Angels at "The '60s" festival. While Friction has garnered international attention as commissioners and interpreters of new music, they are also devoted to performing masterworks of the string quartet repertoire.
The Quartet's program for this concert includes String Quartet No. 2 in F Major, Op. 92, by Prokofiev; String Quartet No. 12 in F Major, Op. 96, by Dvoák; El Correcaminos by Albuquerque native Nicolas Lell Benavides; and Sorrow Song and Jubilee by Libby Larsen.
