Arnica String Quartet: March Music Moderne

From a Finnish composer in Los Angeles, to an Argentinian composer in Boston, this concert by the Arnica String Quartet spans the globe and two centuries in bringing together four great works for string quartet.

Esa Pekka Salonen's "Homunculus" for string quartet, written in 2007 for the Johannes Quartet, is a 12 minute condensation of ideas for a huge string quartet - much like its namesake, the "little man" that was once believed to be contained in every sperm cell - it contains all of the compositional DNA necessary for a large-scale composition.

Osvaldo Golijov's 2002 work "Tenebrae" is a dark and mysterious work that ruminates on beauty, death, darkness, religion, spirituality, and pain.

Arvo Pärt, the mystic composer of Estonia, wrote the first version of "Fratres" in 1977. It has since been arranged for many different combinations of ensembles and solo instruments. The most famous version - made popular by the Kronos Quartet - is most likely that for string quartet. It is a work full of mystical and spiritual resonances, and a natural companion piece to Golijov's "Tenebrae".

Béla Bartók wrote his First String Quartet in 1909 at the age of 28. His six quartets are considered towering masterpieces of 20th century music, and in this first work we find Bartók straddling the divide between the great western European string quartet tradition of Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven, Brahms, Ravel, and Debussy, and the folk-influenced work of his native Hungary.

Fans of Latin music are in for a treat on March 30th at Jimmy Mak's. Vocalist Jessie Marquez
brings her ensemble and The Arnica String Quartet together for a night of intoxicating Cuban/
Brazilian/jazz/pop. Expect to enjoy lush harmony, richly textured, sexy, cool and inviting music.
Marquez has a magnetic stage presence. She weaves together Spanish and English lyrics and
compelling stories about her artistic life in Cuba.

Marquez’s latest release, All I See is Sky, was produced and co-written by pianist Clay Giberson
(Upper Left Trio, Go By Train) and bassist Phil Baker (Pink Martini, Diana Ross). The Arnica
String Quartet is featured on the recording, and creates a lush soundscape alongside the singer’s
intimate and understated approach.

BACKGROUND:
Marquez grew up eating her grandmother’s Cuban cooking and hearing stories about the family’s
days on the island. She first visited her father’s childhood home in 1996. Right away, she
says, “there was something very familiar about it --the way people spoke, their gestures, their
attitudes. I felt at home.”

In 2003, members of the Afro-Cuban Allstars heard her sing and offered to arrange and record
her first CD. In a Havana home studio, between power outages, they recorded Sana Locura,
which reached the top of charts in Latin America, Europe and the United States. Marquez
appeared on Cuban television and radio and subsequently spent eight months performing
throughout the island.

Her 2007 release, Get the Feeling, recorded with guitarist Mike Denny, explores the Cuban genre
known as filin music (a play on the word “feeling”). Filin draws heavily from American jazz and
Brazilian bossa nova.

In 2010, Marquez received a grant from the Oregon Arts Commission to develop a
small series of high-definition, live music videos. They can be seen on YouTube and at
www.jessiemarquez.com.
