San Francisco's acclaimed Cypress String Quartet - Cecily Ward and Tom Stone on violin, Ethan Filner on viola and Jennifer Kloetzel on cello will be bringing their unique blend of technical chops and experimental programming to the Sunset Center, with a program that includes Beethoven's "String Quartet in F Major, Op. 135, ' Mendelssohn's "String Quartet in A minor, Op. 13, No. 2,'' and the Central Coast premiere of Kein Puts' Cy[ress String Quartet Commission, "Lento Assai,'' a work the Quartet commissioned as part of "a program through which composers write works inspired by masterpieces in the standard repertoire,'' Puts writes on his website. " My piece was to be placed between Beethoven.. Mendelssohn. Like Mendelssohn, who drew deep inspiration from the late quartets of Beethoven and in some cases quoted them literally, I found a wellspring of ideas flowing from the slow movement of Beethoven's Op. 135.
