The Quartetto di Cremona is admired as the preeminent quartet of its generation, noted for its lustrous sound, refined musicianship, and stylistic versatility. “It’s a rare blend,” raved Gramophone magazine. “Breadth of sound and capriciousness combined with perfect tuning and ensemble has the players sounding absolutely of one voice … Nothing less than life-affirming.” As ambassadors for the international Friends of Stradivari project, the Quartetto di Cremona performs on the “Paganini Quartet” by Antonio Stradivari, a complete family of string instruments once owned by Niccolò Paganini.

The Westerlies: Wherein Lies the good

Riley Mulherkar, trumpet / Chloe Rowlands, trumpet / Andy Clausen, trombone / Willem de Koch, trombone

Saturday, March 28, 2020 at 8:00 p.m.

Formed in 2011, the self-described “accidental brass quartet” takes its name from the prevailing winds that travel from the West to the East. “Skilled interpreters who are also adept improvisers,” according to NPR’s Fresh Air, The Westerlies bring together jazz, roots, and chamber music influences to create that rarest of hybrids: “music that is both folk-like and composerly, lovely and intellectually rigorous.” Equally at home in concert halls and living rooms, The Westerlies navigate a wide array of venues and projects with the precision of a string quartet, the audacity of a rock band, and the charm of a family sing-along. Sounds just right for Dumbarton’s intimate setting.

This program showcases The Westerlies’ personal take on the American song, with original compositions by each ensemble member, as well as a curated mix of classical, traditional, and jazz. Imbued with the spirit of improvisation and a folk-like approachability, Wherein Lies the Good presents The Westerlies at their best, cutting trails across the vast expanse of the American musical landscape.

Applauded by The Washington Post as “a perfect encapsulation of today’s trends in chamber music,” and by The New Yorker as “independent-minded,” PUBLIQuartet’s creative programming lends a fresh perspective to the Classical music scene. Dedicated to presenting new works for string quartet, PUBLIQuartet was selected as Concert Artists Guild’s New Music/New Places Ensemble at the 2013 CAG Competition, and then garnered Chamber Music America’s 2015 ASCAP Adventurous Programming Award for outstanding and innovative approaches to contemporary classical, jazz, and world chamber music.
