SF Chamber Music Faculty Artist Series: Telegraph Quartet
The Telegraph Quartet (Eric Chin and Joseph Maile, violins; Pei-Ling Lin, viola; Jeremiah Shaw, cello) formed in 2013 with an equal passion for the standard chamber music repertoire and contemporary, non-standard works alike. Described by the San Francisco Chronicle as “…an incredibly valuable addition to the cultural landscape” and “powerfully adept… with a combination of brilliance and subtlety,” the Telegraph Quartet was awarded the prestigious 2016 Walter W. Naumburg Chamber Music Award and the Grand Prize at the 2014 Fischoff Chamber Music Competition. The Quartet is currently on the chamber music faculty at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music as the Quartet-in-Residence and is comprised of nearly all SFCM alumni. Tonight, they’ll be performing Britten’s Three Divertimenti for String Quartet, Beethoven’s String Quartet No. 1 in F Major, and Brahms’ String Quartet No. 2 in A Minor.
