Wolf, Britten, Ravel and Wes Anderson?

By Rachel Segal

On April 23rd, the Fairmount String Quartet will perform:

Hugo Wolf - Italian Serenade
Benjamin Britten - Simple Symphony
Maurice Ravel - String Quartet in F

I have been looking forward to this program all season! Three important works that I just adore! and if you're a Wes Anderson Fan, you will love this concert. Both the Ravel Quartet and the Britten Simple Symphony have been used in his films. 

Check out the second movement of the Ravel Quartet on the opening credits of "The Royal Tenenbaums"

and Playful Pizzicato from Britten's "Simple Symphony" on "Moonrise Kingdom"
