The Friction Quartet and pianist Jenny Q. Chai play two piano quintets for Noe Valley Chamber Music this Sunday afternoon, one by Robert Schumann, and one that’s freshly written for them by Andy Akiho. It features a ‘prepared’ piano (and in one of the movements, the cello as well) with certain strings dampened by a kind of soft putty, which gives a kind of ‘muted bell sound.’
