Gerald Carpenter: Juilliard String Quartet Returns to Campbell Hall

Wednesday's performance will feature guest Helen Callus on viola

UCSB Arts & Lectures and the Distinguished Artists Series in Chamber Music in the UCSB Department of Music will present the world-famous Juilliard String Quartet, with special guest Helen Callus on viola, at 8 p.m. Wednesday in UCSB Campbell Hall.

The Juilliard program is made up of three works: Franz Schubert’s Quartet No. 13 in A Minor, D. 804, Opus 29 — nicknamed the “Rosamunde” — of 1824; the String Quartet No. 2, Opus 17 (1917) by Bela Bartók, and Wolfgang Mozart’s String Quintet in D Major, K. 593 with Callus.

We have a kind of proprietary interest in the Juilliard String Quartet around here, since one of the violinists, Ronald Copes, was until a few years ago, a popular professor of violin at UCSB and a guiding light to young American composers, especially those on the West Coast.

Since he was tapped to play with Juilliard, becoming a professor at the famous music school at the same time, he has returned with the quartet every year to perform at Campbell Hall. This year, he will have the pleasure of sharing the stage with his former colleague, master violist Callus, for a performance of the Mozart string quintet. It will be a pleasure for the audience, too.

Admission to see the Juilliard String Quartet is $35 for the general public and $15 for UCSB students.

Tickets are available from the Arts & Lectures Ticket Office at 805.893.3535, or click here to order online.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
