CSQ's Stravinsky Quartet Project aims to transcribe Stravinsky's ballets to string quartet form (+percussion). The project is a multi-concert performance series and dance collaboration currently focusing on The Rite of Spring.
This project features CSQ violinist and composer David Ryther's original transcription for string quartet and percussion.
CSQ pairs the Rite of Spring alongside related works to highlight the structure, impulses and influences of this masterpiece.
The Rite of Spring can be heard in CSQ concert programs, culminating in 2019 with performances of a newly choreographed version of the ballet in collaboration with Eric Kupers and CSU East Bay.
CSQ is currently fundraising to help make these exciting events come to fruition. Please consider making a donation!
