Have you ever gone over to your friend’s home and learned something new about them by what’s in their record collection — or for the 21st century, what’s on their playlist? Come to Afiara’s living room for Afiara’s The Playlist. The Playlist is a dynamic program where the Quartet curates on the spot a 50-minute program that is performed without pause, consisting of original works and arrangements, from a movement of Mozart’s Dissonance to Steve Reich’s “Clapping Music” to Osvaldo Golijov and back to late Beethoven. With commentary and anecdotes, the Quartet animates the program toward the inclusion of those getting to know the ensemble and its repertoire. Every The Playlist event is different, where the Afiara “plays the room” depending on what they feel the audience wants and/or needs.
