Episode 39 – Milena Pajaro-van de Stadt of Dover Quartet / Beethoven Complete String Quartets, Vol. 1
On this episode of Classical Chicago, Cedille President Jim Ginsburg joins Dover Quartet violist Milena Pajaro-van de Stadt in conversation about the quartet’s new series of Beethoven string quartets. Beethoven Complete String Quartets, Volume I kicks off the emerging 3-volume series with the composer’s theatrical Opus 18 quartets.
Anthony McGill, New York Philharmonic principal clarinet and 2020 Avery Fisher Prize winner, and the multiple Grammy Award-winning Pacifica Quartet present an album illuminating experiences that have shaped America through works by Richard Danielpour, James Lee III, Ben Shirley (all three world-premiere recordings), and Valerie Coleman. McGill describes it as a project driven by the desire to “expand the capacity for art and music to change the world.”
