Event Description

Overview

The Calidore String Quartet has been praised by the New York Times for its “deep reserves of virtuosity and irrepressible dramatic instinct.” The Los Angeles Times described the quartet as “astonishing,” their playing “shockingly deep,” approaching “the kind of sublimity other quartets spend a lifetime searching” and praised its balance of “intellect and expression.” The Washington Post has said that “Four more individual musicians are unimaginable, yet these speak, breathe, think and feel as one.”

Performers:
Jeffrey Myers, violin
Ryan Meehan, violin
Jeremy Berry, viola
Estelle Choi, cello

The Calidore String Quartet has been called astonishing by The Los Angeles Times, and praised for its “deep reserves of virtuosity and irrepressible dramatic instinct” by the New York Times. Founded at the Colburn School in Los Angeles in 2010, the award-winning group has quickly become one of today’s premiere chamber ensembles. The group’s name, an amalgamation of California and “doré” (French for “golden”), represents its reverence for the diversity of culture and the strong support it received from its original home: Los Angeles, California, the “golden state.”

Program:
Mozart: String Quartet in B Flat Major, K. 458
Lash: String Quartet No. 1*
Beethoven: String Quartet in B Flat Major, Op. 130

A commission by Center Chamber Music patrons Elizabeth and Justus Schlichting

Preview Talk at 7:15pm with Dr. Byron Adams
