Here’s a don’t-miss concert for classical music fans: The world-renowned Alexander String Quartet performs 8 p.m. tonight (Wednesday) at Fresno State’s Concert Hall. The event is a special non-subscription offering of the Philip Lorenz Memorial Keyboard Concerts series.
I’ve written about the concert twice in recent days: a roundup story in Friday’s 7 section; and an update in my Sunday Spotlight column (second item) about Andreas Werz, artistic director of Keyboard Concerts, who will join the quartet in a performance of Schumann’s Piano Quintet.
The Alexander String Quartet has lots of fans in Fresno because of the group’s repeated visits to the CSU Summer Arts festival when it was held at Fresno State. I’ve heard them twice, and they really are incredible. Consider them chamber-music gold.
