Upcoming Concerts at Evergreen
  • Dublin Guitar Quartet
    October 25, 2014 at 3:00 PM

    Brian Bolger; Pat Brunnock; Michael O'Toole; Tomas O'Durcain

    Dubbed a "quartet with a difference" by the Irish Times, the trailblazing Dublin Guitar Quartet is devoted exclusively to contemporary music. Since its 2002 formation at the Dublin Conservatory of Music and Drama, the ensemble has commissioned new work, adapted contemporary pieces not originally written for guitar, and broadened both its range and tuning capabilities through the use of eight- and eleven-string guitars, as well as specialized amplification. With full-bodied power and grace, the group is firmly charting its place on the map of Irish voices on the global artistic stage. Hear works by Arvo Pärt, Philip Glass, Steve Reich, György Ligeti and others as you’ve never heard them before

    With a 2010 Grammy Award nomination for "Best Chamber Music Performance," the New York City-based Ensō String Quartet has quickly become one of the country’s most exciting young ensembles. Shortly after the group's inception at Yale University in 1999, Ensō had success at the Banff International String Quartet Competition and won the Concert Artists Guild International Competition. The quartet’s live concerts have been highlighted for having an "edge-of-the-seat vitality few groups maintain throughout a performance" (Houston Chronicle). They will perform chamber music classics by Wolf, Shostakovich, and Sibelius.

    Event Program:

     

    WOLF, Italian Serenade for String Quartet

    SHOSTAKOVICH, String Quartet No.2, Op.68 in A Major
