Artist Insights

Composer Dinuk Wijeratne notes, “This virtuoso musical escapade for string quartet is inspired by the audacious, real-life theft of Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa from the Louvre Museum in 1911.” Maybe there is a nod to an old-time Hollywood heist movie, too. How often are we encouraged to laugh in a concert hall?

Hatzis’ second String Quartet is perhaps the furthest we could go from the first piece. Looking at human history filled with violent conflict, the composer asks us to listen to the sounds of ordinary life in the shadow of war. With cinematic, Mediterranean, and minimalist influences, Hatzis creates a work that is truly one of a kind.
