San Francisco Performances
Catalyst Quartet with pianist Stewart Goodyear
October 7, 7:30PM
Herbst Theatre, San Francisco
The Catalyst Quartet and pianist Stewart Goodyear will open the San Francisco Performances 2021/22 season on Thursday, October 7 at Herbst Theatre with the Quartet’s bold “Uncovered” Series. The Grammy Award-winning quartet has chosen to team up with guest artists in four programs throughout the season to explore music from composers whose careers have been overlooked due to their race or gender. This opening program plays the exceptionally beautiful “Lyric for String Quartet” of George Walker, a piece far more known than its own creator, and is said to be one of the most frequently performed works by any American composer! Additional pieces will include London-born Samuel Coleridge-Taylor’s String Quartet and Piano Quintet in G minor and his Piano Quintet in G minor.
The audience will be invited to stay for a post-performance talk with the artists and moderator David Samuel of the Alexander String Quartet.
