Momenta presents the Lost String Quartet

Momenta presents a new theatrical string quartet piece for children based on N.M. Bodecker’s delightful illustrated children’s book "The Lost String Quartet." It features original music by Stephanie Griffin, theater direction and narration by Fernando Villa Proal, and newly created percussion instruments by Michael Evans.

The Lost String Quartet is a far-fetched story about all the terrible mishaps that befall a string quartet on its way to a concert in the thick of winter. Using the ebullient Finale of Mozart’s String Quartet in G, K. 387 as a point of departure, the music is a set of variations that become more outrageous as the story develops and the instruments are compromised, culminating in a finale played on homemade instruments.
