Performances of the Calidore String Quartet are renowned for their “deep reserves of virtuosity and irrepressible dramatic instinct” (New York Times). Their unique “balance of intellect and expression” (Los Angeles Times) is complemented by the feeling that “four more individual musicians are unimaginable, yet these speak, breathe, think and feel as one” (Washington Post). After over a decade of performances and residencies in the world’s most esteemed venues and festivals, the release of numerous critically acclaimed recordings and lauded with significant awards, the Calidore String Quartet is recognized as one of the world’s foremost interpreters of a vast repertory.
 

Program:

“Remembering the Future”

The geniuses of history have long had an influence on later composers. Mendelssohn and Benjamin Britten were unique in their ability to cultivate deep reverence for past masters’ work, while using it as the fodder for their own invention.

Bach/Mozart: Selections from the Well-Tempered Clavier
Mendelssohn: String Quartet in E minor, Op. 44, No. 2
Purcell: Chacony in G minor, Z. 730
Britten: String Quartet No. 2, Op. 36
