Acclaimed Escher String Quartet To Perform

screen_shot_2016-10-25_at_5-29-24_pmThe Escher String Quartet has received acclaim for its profound musical insight and rare tonal beauty. A former BBC New Generation Artist, the ensemble serves as Season Artists of The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center. The quartet will perform at Vassar College’s Skinner Hall of Music on Sunday, November 6, 3:00pm.

This concert is free and open to the public.

The program at Vassar will feature Mendelssohn’s Quartet in D Major, Op. 44, No. 1; Bartok’s Quartet No. 2, Op. 17; and Dvorak’s Piano Quintet featuring Vassar music faculty member Todd Crow.

Within months of its inception in 2005, the ensemble came to the attention of key musical figures worldwide. Championed by the Emerson Quartet, the Escher Quartet was invited by both Pinchas Zukerman and Itzhak Perlman to be Quartet in Residence at each artist’s summer festival: the Young Artists Program at Canada’s National Arts Centre; and the Perlman Chamber Music Program on Shelter Island, NY.

Known for their wide stylistic interests, the Escher Quartet has collaborated with jazz saxophonist Joshua Redman, vocalist Kurt Elling, legendary Latin artist Paquito D’Rivera, and tours regularly with Grammy award winning guitarist Jason Vieaux. The group takes its name from Dutch graphic artist M.C. Escher, inspired by Escher’s method of interplay between individual components working together to form a whole.
