Calder Quartet

Thursday, Mar 12 2020, 7:30 PM

McCoy Studio Theater

Winners of the prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant, the Calder Quartet are widely known for the discovery, commissioning, recording, and mentoring of some of today’s best emerging composers.
 
Inspired by the innovative American artist Alexander Calder, the Quartet’s desire to bring immediacy and context to the works they perform creates an artfully crafted musical experience.
 
Hailed as "superb" and "imaginative, skillful creators" by the New York Times, the Quartet captivates audiences by exploring a broad spectrum of repertoire and always striving to fulfill the composer’s vision in their performances.
 
The group's distinctive artistry is exemplified by a musical curiosity brought to everything they perform and has led them to be called "one of America’s most satisfying—and most enterprising—quartets" by the Los Angeles Times.
 
The Calder Quartet includes Benjamin Jacobson, violin; Tereza Stanislav, violin; Jonathan Moerschel, viola; and Eric Byers, cello.

The works performed will include:
-Mozart G Major K. 387
-Anders Hillborg ‘Kongsgaard Variations’
-Beethoven Quartet Op. 127
