Calidore String Quartet

Sunday, February 4, 2024
No charge for Four Arts members

The Calidore String Quartet, Grand Prize winners at the inaugural M-Prize Competition and recipient of an Avery Fisher Career Grant, returns to The Four Arts for an afternoon of “Remembering the Future.”

By drawing on the music of J.S. Bach and Henry Purcell, composers like Felix Mendelssohn and Benjamin Britten reveal not only reverence for the past but also a unique capacity to transform such allusions into the sounds of tomorrow. Each half of this program creates a transcendent bridge between old and new, which speaks to music’s capacity to travel across time and place.
