      Haydn Voyages: Music at the Maritime

      Haydn Voyages: Music at the Maritime The Hausmann Quartet and the Maritime Museum of San Diego are excited to partner to present this quarterly concert series aboard Berkeley - an 1898 steam ferryboat that operated for 60 years on San Francisco Bay. Concerts aboard this National Historic Landmark, docked in downtown San Diego next to Star of India, explore the evolution of the string quartet through the lens of Joseph Haydn’s quartet cycle. The programming sets his works alongside those of master composers from our own era and stretching back to his musical ancestors. As the father of the string quartet and one of history’s most innovative composers, Haydn is an ideal guide to this exploration of some of the most powerful, creative music ever written. Each creative program also includes informative and entertaining commentary during the performance from noted UC Santa Barbara musicologist Derek Katz. Save 20% off the single ticket price by buying a season subscription to all four concerts! The fifth season will take audiences on a series of wonderful journeys, with programs that encompass a vast range of time and place, featuring treasured classics alongside some of today’s freshest, most creative voices from around the world. Come enjoy world-class performances on the city's only floating concert hall! February 9 - Dancing in the Orange Groves The season opens with an evocative mix of music, pairing two Haydn masterpieces with works suggestive of our own time and place. Terry Riley’s Good Medicine Dance is the final segment of his epic Salome Dances for Peace, which updates the legend of Salome to today (or at least to 1987). Caroline Shaw’s Valencia is an ode to the common supermarket orange, but also in the composer’s words “a kind of celebration of awareness of the natural, unadorned food that is still available to us.” Join us for this Californian adventure! August 30 - After the Storm (previously scheduled for April 19) The Hausmann Quartet will be joined by longtime friend and collaborator, soprano Ann Moss, for John Harbison’s The Rewaking, the centerpiece of an afternoon of music drawing inspiration from the natural world. This exploration of our environment is sure to be an unforgettable journey, including a sound meditation by Pauline Oliveros (who spent significant time in San Diego), John Howell Morrison’s Hard Weather Makes Good Wood and Haydn’s Bird Quartet. This afternoon on the bay is sure to open your ears and warm your heart! October 4 (KPBS night) - Inhale, Exhale The annual celebration of KPBS’ sponsorship of the Haydn Voyages series is a typically adventurous mix of old and new. Haydn will be joined on this concert by two of today’s most compelling composers: Hannah Lash (her 2009 work Frayed) and a world premiere by Joshua Roman, commissioned for the Hausmann Quartet. Beethoven turns 250 this year, but his music sounds as fresh, experimental and powerful as ever; his Serioso quartet anchors this program’s exploration of contrast, breath, tension and release. November 15 - Worldly Travelers The fifth season closes with a wonderfully varied journey around the world, with stops in this century’s Middle East and 18th-century France, and of course Haydn’s Austria. Works by two Iranian composers from today (Reza Vali and Aftab Darvishi) share a program with the wonderfully inventive Chevalier de Saint-Georges (remembered as the first classical composer of African descent) who collaborated on many of Haydn’s Paris premieres. Take a trip around the world with the Hausmann Quartet to round out the fifth season of Haydn Voyages!
