Works by Penn's Anna Weesner

The music of Penn's award-winning composer and assistant professor of music, Dr. Anna Weesner, will be featured in an October 6 performance by the Cypress String Quartet. Dr. Weesner's piece Flux will be the centerpiece at the concert, which is sponsored by the Department of Music and Penn Contemporary Music. Commissioned as part of the Cypress Quartet's "Call and Response" project, the piece acknowledges standard chamber repertoire while pursuing new musical territory.

The program will also include Daniel Asia's String Quartet No. 2 and Debussy's String Quartet, Op. 10 in G Minor. Praised by the Los Angeles Times for its "musical astuteness and virtuoso resources," the Cypress Quartet (Cecily Ward and Tom Stone, violins; Ethan Filner, viola; Jennifer Kloetzel, cello) has been featured in Chamber Music Magazine as the "Generation X ensemble to watch." Founded in 1996, the quartet has appeared regularly on NPR's "Performance Today" and has toured throughout the U.S., Europe, and Japan. The concert will be at 8 p.m. on Sunday, October 6 at the Curtis Institute of Music, 1726 Locust Street. Admission is free (general seating, no tickets required).
