Axiom Quartet's "High Contrast" Season Tickets | Palmer Memorial Episcopal Church | Saturday, 27. October 2018

The Axiom Quartet is a group that plays music for people who love music.  However, not just any music; all music, all genres, and with no boundaries or limits.   Axiom’s 7th season High Contrast continues in this tradition of embracing all music.  Every exciting program this season will contrast masterpieces with totally different genres of music to create a lasting musical experience you will love.   It will be the musical equivalent of bananas, peanut butter and bacon; but without the food allergies.

We are thrilled to announce that we are starting our very first music subscription series at Palmer Memorial Episcopal church.  Our first concert of the season begins with Black, Death, and Metal on October 27th at 7:30.  We are playing George Crumb’s iconic Black Angels along with the Death and the Maiden quartet by Schubert that Crumb eerily quotes in his percussive and evocative quartet.   What goes with death and !   We will be shredding new versions of Metallica, Megadeath, and Slayer’s legendary music.  

Sultry Secrets is a highly romantic concert that is only coincidentally, we promise, at the same time as a certain romantically themed day.  This concert, February 9th at 7:30, features Alban Berg’s Lyric Suite for String Quartet. Full of secret references, numerology, cryptic acronyms, this rich masterpiece tells the story of Berg’s secret love affair.   When thinking about powerful love, power rock ballads come to mind. Big hair, big music, and big love will make for an unforgettable evening.

Our season began with black darkness and will close with white light; colors of high contrast.  Axiom Quartet’s Out of the Dark, May 11 at 7:30, is a journey from the dark into the light with works by three celebrated living composers: Terry Riley, Steve Reich, and Arvo Part.  These composers are generally thought of as minimalist composers, but each has their own divergent style. Less is more at this concert of Steve Reich’s Grammy award winning Different Trains,  Arvo Part’s spiritual and mystic Fratres and Terry Riley’s jazz improvisation inspired G-Song.
