Harlem Quartet: Game Changers

Ilmar Gavilán, violin/Melissa White, violin/Jaime Amador, viola/Felix Umansky, cello

Saturday, March 30, 2019 at 8:00 p.m.  

RICHARD RODGERS (1902-1979) My Funny Valentine

CLAUDE DEBUSSY (1862-1918) String Quartet in G Minor, op. 10

JOHN BIRKS “DIZZY” GILLESPIE (1917-1993) A Night in Tunisia

ANTON WEBERN (1883-1945) Langsamer Satz

LUDWIG VAN BEETHOVEN (1770-1827) String Quartet No. 11 in F Minor, op. 95 “Serioso”

Praised for its “panache” by The New York Times and hailed in the Cincinnati Enquirer for “bringing a new attitude to classical music, one that is fresh, bracing and intelligent,” the Harlem Quartet advances diversity in classical music while engaging new audiences with varied repertoire that includes works by minority composers. Their mission to share their passion with a wider audience has taken them around the world: from a 2009 performance at The White House for President Obama and First Lady, Michelle Obama, to a highly successful tour of South Africa in 2012 and beyond. 

The engagement of Harlem Quartet is made possible through the Special Presenter Initiatives program of the Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation with support from the National Endowment for the Arts and the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities.

Camerata RCO: Members of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra

Saturday, April 13, 2019 at 8:00 p.m.  

GUSTAV MAHLER (1860-1911) Piano Quartet in A Minor

JOHANNES BRAHMS (1833-97) Trio in E-flat Major for Horn, Violin, and Piano, op. 40

ERNÖ DOHNÁNYI (1877-1960) Sextet in C Major, op. 37

The Camerata RCO brings the magnificent talents of Amsterdam’s Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, a fixture on shortlists of the world’s greatest orchestras, to the realm of chamber music. These six colleagues founded this independent group with the desire to explore smaller, more intimate repertoire. The Washington Post describes their work as “sophisticated, expressive music making with a precision ensemble as snug as the pieces of a jigsaw puzzle.”

Turtle Island Quartet: Bird’s Eye View —
The Legend of Charlie Parker

David Balakrishnan, violin/Alex Hargreaves, violin/ Benjamin von Gutzeit, viola/Malcolm Parson, cello

Saturday, May 4, 2019 at 8:00 p.m. 

The two-time Grammy-winning Turtle Island Quartet draws its primary focus and musical identity from the individual creative voices of the ensemble, who are at home in folk, pop and jazz. Turtle Island Quartet continues to recalibrate the parameters of the traditional string quartet form. In this high flying program, the Quartet pays homage to the visionary brilliance of jazz saxophonist Charlie Parker. The genius of his improvisations almost single handedly catapulted jazz from pop into art music, indelibly altering the musical landscape of America. 

Tickets ordered within 7 days of the performance will be held at the box office: please do not select the mailing option.
