“Gypsy Strings” is a two-city collaboration, Seaton said. Gypsy Strings was also co-curated by one of their very of musicians.
"From Humboldt County, in the beautiful rotunda of the Morris Graves Museum of Art, violinist and NSS concertmaster Terrie Baune, principal cellist Carol Jacobson, and pianist John Chernoff recorded a movement from Schuman's lively Piano Trio #3 in G Minor," Seaton said. "They returned to Shasta County's historic Old City Hall to record a high-energy movement from Brahms' Piano Quartet in G minor, joined by NSS principal violist Leah Carl. The full-length feature of "Gypsy Strings" is a string quintet by German composer August Klughardt, composed in 1890. Terrie, Leah and Carol are joined by violinist and assistant concertmaster LiYuan Ho and cellist Anthoni Polcari for Klughardt's quintet, which ranges from warm, rich moods to foot-tapping rhythms."
