Last weekend, the intrepid Fellows Quartet ventured through driving snow and icy roads to the Berkshires for a cozy, productive weekend of rehearsing and bonding. Liz Hollander (former CMW board president) and her husband Carl Kaestle were kind enough to offer their lovely vintage farmhouse in the scenic foothills—a perfect retreat from our urban environs.
We hunkered down to decipher and prepare Bartok’s second string quartet, which we will perform in Rhode Island in early February. We cooked together, laughed together, relaxed together, and unraveled some of Bartok’s musical mysteries. Thank you, Liz and Carl!
