MACOMB, IL – The in-residence Julstrom String Quartet will perform a chamber music concert at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 6, 2011 in the College of Fine Arts and Communication (COFAC) Recital Hall.

The program will include “String Quartet in F Major” by Maurice Ravel; and “String Quartet for the Lake” by WIU School of Music composer James Caldwell, which will be a premiere performance by the Julstrom String Quartet.

“The two-movement work uses a more severe, chromatic language than is typical of my recent music, but I can hear many of the same kinds of interests: combining and recombining fragments of distinctive material to create shifting and flexible textures, idiomatic and colorful instrumental writing, and layers of activity going on at different speeds at the same time,” Caldwell said of his 1980 composition. “I grew up visiting my grandparents near Lake Huron, and I was living in Evanston (IL), near Lake Michigan, when I composed the quartet. While the movements are not programmatic or pictorial, the music was informed by my reflections on the different moods and the many kinds of wave motion of the lakes.”

Named after the late, longtime chair of Western Illinois’ music department (now School of Music) Clifford Julstrom, the quartet contributes to the Bureau of Cultural Affairs “Faculty Chamber Music Series” and gives concerts and clinics on campus and throughout the region.
