Del Sol String Quartet
Featuring the musical works from composers across the globe, the “Del Sol String Quartet” will highlight pieces that center on what it is that brings us together. From Australia, a work by composer Peter Sculthorpe examines global warming and environmental destruction, Arab-American composer Mohammed Fairouz’s work weaves together melodies that draw upon the similarities among religions in the Middle East in “The Named Angels,” and Chinary Ung’s “Spiral X” delves into the Cambodian genocide cry — together these pieces come together in one performance that circumvents the world in the most humanitarian way.
This performance by the Del Sol String Quartet is hosted by Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture as part of the San Francisco International Arts Festival, which runs from May 19 – June 5 exclusively at FMCAC. The Festival features over 100 performances by 50 different ensembles, as well as an expansive arts exhibition celebrating 100 years of the Dada Movement.
