The Ives Quartet has established a reputation for passion, precision and provocative programming while winning accolades for playing that demonstrates super-refinement and visceral, rock-and-roll intensity. Ives Quartet members are Bettina Mussumeli, violin; Jodi Levitz, viola; Susan Freier, violin; and Stephen Harrison, cello.

The program will include Henry Cowell, Qt. # 4 "United"; Tchaikovsky: Qt. # 1 in D major, op. 11; and Schubert: String Quintet in C major (D. 956, op. posth. 163).

This Mill Valley Chamber Music Society concert also features cellist Bonnie Hampton, a Berkeley native and former faculty member of the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. Hampton joins Ives Quartet performing Franz Schubert Quintet in C.

Ives Quartet presents an annual home concert series in Silicon Valley and the Greater San Francisco Bay Area in addition to performing nationally and internationally at noted chamber music series and festivals.

Inspired by the passionate artistic commitment and unique temperament of American composer Charles Ives (1874-1954), the Ives Quartet has received critical enthusiasm for its "practice of reveling in the unfamiliar," championing a repertoire that combines established masterworks with under-appreciated gems, neglected scores of early twentieth-century America and specially commissioned new pieces.

This concert is made possible through the Musical Grant Program, sponsored by the San Francisco Friends of Chamber Music and supported by the Heller Foundation, Hewlett Foundation, San Francisco Foundation and San Francisco Grants for the Arts.
