Jacob Maarse Florists
655 E. Green Street
String quartet is the most daring and delicate form of classical music. Like a flower, its beauty disguises deep roots that hold us together across centuries. Through these roots, Paul Simon has a conversation with Bach inspired by Haydn. It’s all channeled through today’s international rock stars of string – the Doric Quartet - in an unlikely pairing with the inventive and passionate percussionist Mona Tavakoli. The musical intersection takes place at Jacob Maarse – California's most famed florist. In this setting of visual and aromatic delight, Rachael Worby takes us on an exploration of the music of the world's past in full modern bloom.
