The string quartet brings to mind the works of 18th century composers like Mozart and Haydn, but the truth is the genre has evolved and adapted to various styles in every age. This program will feature the impressionistic quartet by 19th century French composer Claude Debussy. At times turbulent and at times bright, Debussy's work encompasses a breadth of moods and images, in line with the aesthetic of the Romantic era of classical music, which sought to expand the expressive capability of music through innovations in harmony and form.

Moving on to the 21st century, Lum and her friends will also perform two movements of Oxy professor and Grammy-nominated composer Adam Schoenberg's *Motio* string quartet. Released in 2015, this fast and buoyant work is inspired by the art of racing. The first movement, "Floor It," is a revised and expanded version of Schoenberg's previous quartet, *Go*, which takes advantage of glissando techniques to create a motor revving effect before taking off with a soaring groove. The second movement, "Slo-Mo," works within a bright and open texture that brings on feelings of simple, unadorned reverence, like capturing a sentimental moment with the iPhone's slow-motion video feature.

This concert is free and open to the public, thanks to the generous support of the Benjamin H. Culley Fund. Visit the Music Department website for maps and parking information.
