The newest offering from the Trinity Alps Chamber Music Festival is the “Winter Residency”, an opportunity for established California-based ensembles. The first group to be selected for this program is San Francisco's Friction Quartet. This award-winning young group is known for their genre-bending performances that highlight both classical masterpieces and adventurous contemporary music.
Friction Quartet, recipient of the 2012 Berkeley Piano Club Emerging Artist Award, has established a reputation for edgy programming and exhilarating performance of contemporary string quartets. Through artistic collaboration in varied mediums, the commissioning of new works, crossing into non-classical genres, adding movement to performances, and incorporating mixed medias, Friction Quartet creates a progressive and inviting concert atmosphere that attracts audiences of all ages and interests. Community improvement and education are crucial elements to Friction’s work; free public performance and outreach in under-served communities and schools builds and sustains a vibrant culture, while broadening future audiences of classical music.
Friction has commissioned new works from Ian Dicke, Gabriella Smith, and Daniel Felsenfeld among many others. 2013-14 events include an installation of music and dance with Dan Becker and Garrett-Moulton Productions, Healdsburg, CA’s Brave New Music series, and Friction’s New York City debut at The Firehouse Space.
