The adventurous Cramer Quartet performs on period instruments in a full spectrum of musical styles. As a celebration of the extraordinary quartets of Joseph Haydn, the group has been commissioning American composers to write new string quartets in response to his iconic works. In this concert, the Cramers will play music both by the father of the string quartet as well as exciting new works from Jessica Meyer and Caroline Shaw.
