U.S. Premiere by Emerson Quartet of Lawrence Dillon's String Quartet
No. 5 on April 10 in Winston-Salem, NC and April 14 in Seattle, WA
Lawrence Dillon's String Quartet No. 5: Through the Night, will be given
its U.S. Premiere performances by the internationally renowned Emerson
Quartet on Saturday, April 10 - 7:30 PM at Watson Chamber Music Hall of
University of North Carolina School of the Arts, 1533 S. Main Street in
Winston-Salem and on Wednesday, April 14 at Meany Hall of the University
of Washington, 15th Ave, NE and NE 40th St. in Seattle. The programs

From the Invisible Cities String Quartet Cycle, String Quartet No. 5
combines elements of chaconne, passacaglia and theme-and-variations.
The piece takes the Welsh tune All Through the Night through, as the
composer writes, 'a dizzying and dazzling journey from twilight to
twilight.' The movements are Twilight - Variations; Dream - Chaconne;
Dream - Passacaglia and Variations - Twilight. The piece was commissioned
by the Emerson String Quartet and an anonymous donor in honor of the
University of North Carolina School of the Arts. More about the Invisible
Cities Cycle at http://www.lawrencedillon.com/invisible.php.
Future Emerson performances of Quartet No. 5 are scheduled for the
Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. and State University of
New York at Stony Brook.
