Stephen Blumberg is a composer of music primarily for acoustic instruments who has also collaborated with visual artists to create soundtracks for video and installation work, sometimes including digital electronics. His music is vivid and colorful, with multilayered textures and intricate rhythmic structures, driven by an underlying instinct for emotion and drama, and shaped by an intuitive sense of form.

Lydian Quartet (Noon Concert)
Vanderhoef Studio Theatre, Mondavi Center

The Lydian Quartet, colloquially known to fellow musicians and composers as “The Lyds,” has earned a reputation as one of the most important quartets for sharing the work of living composers. However, since its founding in 1980, the quartet has ”embraced the full range of string quartet repertory with curiosity, virtuosity, and dedication to the highest artistic ideals of music making.” They remain the quartet-in-residence at Brandeis University. Members: Judith Eissenberg, violin, Joshua Gordon, cello, Mark Berger, viola, and Daniel Stepner, violin.
