San Francisco’s critically acclaimed Del Sol Quartet presents a program focusing on young Iranian and Iranian-American composers, including works by three UCI graduate students. Del Sol will also perform Ben Johnston’s String Quartet No. 4 Amazing Grace. In Johnston’s overwhelmingly inventive composition, the well-loved European hymn resonates with just-intonation intervals.
