The Spokane String Quartet will perform pieces by Shostakovich, Sibelius and Haydn in a concert Sunday at the Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox.
Shostakovich’s String Quartet No. 6, based on Russian nursery rhymes, is more light-hearted than his typically dark, somber works.
Sibelius’ String Quartet in D minor, known as “Voces Intimae (Intimate Voices),” was written at the prime of his career as he was dealing with health and financial issues. Completing the program is Haydn’s String Quartet in F minor, Op. 20, No. 5.
The concert begins Sunday at 3 p.m. at The Fox, 1001 W. Sprague Ave. Tickets are $18 for adults, $15 for seniors and $10 for students, through the Fox box office (509-624-1200) or TicketsWest outlets (800-325-SEAT, www.ticketswest.com).
