Cohesive Escher String Quartet to perform Sept. 24 at Minsky Hall
The Escher String Quartet, acclaimed for its musical insight and tonal beauty, will perform at 3 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 24 at Minsky Recital Hall.
Musicians Adam Barnett-Hart (violin), Aaron Boyd (violin), Pierre Lapointe (viola) and Brook Speltz (cello) take their name from Dutch graphic artist M.C. Escher because they’re inspired by his method of interplay between individual components working together to form a whole.
The New York ensemble came to the attention of key musical figures worldwide soon after forming in 2005. Itzhak Perlman invited the group to be Quartet in Residence at the Perlman Chamber Music Program on Shelter Island, New York. A former BBC New Generation Artist, the quartet has performed at the BBC Proms at Cadogan Hall and is a regular guest at Wigmore Hall.
After the concert, Andres von Huene’s sculpture Mina will be unveiled. The sculpture was created in association with the Littlefield Gallery Sculptor-in-Residence Program. It will reside in the CCA lobby. Following the dedication, a reception will be held for the musicians and concert attendees.
