South Florida Symphony Presents Murder in the Chamber

Discover the sounds of Bernard Hermann, one of the most brilliant film composers of the last century, the writer of such classics as Psycho and Citizen Kane.  Explore Tolstoy’s “Kreutzer Sonata” through the music of Janacek.  Experience the turbulent life of Smetana in his semi-autobiographical string quartet.

The program includes Bernard Hermann’s Echoes, Janacek’s String Quartet No. 1 “The Kreutzer Sonata,” and Smetana’s String Quartet No. 1.  Whitney La Grange (violin), Mioi Takeda (violin), Arthur Dibble (viola), and Arthur Cook (cello) collaborate to bring classics of the chamber repertoire.  Composed of premiere musicians from the South Florida Symphony, the Blue Door String Quartet aims not only to perform, but to educate the audience about the music through Mr. Cook’ illuminating introductions. 

Of their music, a critic wrote, “The Quartet is itself a tonic for local ears.  No symphony’s string section, no matter how skilled or well-rehearsed . . . , can play with the precision that these four string players generate. . . And when an opportunity to play expressively comes up, they invariably make the most of it” (Solares Hill).
