Description

The Spektral Quartet ushers in the New Year with a brand new release, Serious Business, an album unpacking humor through four distinctive compositional lenses. Meticulous transcriptions of bits from stand-up comedians provide the launch point for Chris Fisher-Lochhead’s Hack, while Sky Macklay sends the white-knuckled quartet careening through tonality for her aptly titled Many Many Cadences, and Dave Reminick compels the quartet to sing and play simultaneously throughout his hyper-kinetic suite, The Ancestral Mousetrap. Josef Haydn’s Quartet Op. 33 No. 2 “The Joke” provides the traditional music foil for this dynamic record, selections of which audiences will hear live and from the album at the event.
