Caviar, Vodka, and a World Premiere for the Montclaire String Quartet


The upcoming week of recitals for the Montclaire String Quartet seeks to offer a variety of musical flavors. A taste of Caviar -- with Mozart's Quartet No. 15 in D minor K421, a splash of vodka -- with Tchaikovsky's Quartet No. 1 in D major op. 11, and a world premiere -- with Matt Jackfert's new piece POLLY HOLLOW for String Quartet.

Tuesday, the MSQ graced WVPB's studios with their presence and a tutorial of Jackfert's new piece featuring musical selections and descriptions from the composer. Take a listen as the musicians walk us through the piece that's based on a hike through Polly Hollow, a trail in Kanawha State Forest in Charleston.
