Dali String Quartet - Latin Grace, Classical Style

Date/Time

Sunday, February 3, 2013
03:15 PM until 05:00 PM

Description

Possessing an artist’s grace and a Caribbean soul, the Dalí Quartet is anchored in both Venezuela’s El Sistema and American classical conservatory traditions, to offer a captivating range of traditional string quartet and Latin-American repertoire, characterized by an eclectic mix of rhythm and sound. Its performances embrace the imagination, excellence and panache of the Quartet’s namesake, the Spanish surrealist artist Salvador Dalí. The Dalí performs an eclectic program including Mendelssohn’s String Quartet Op. 44 No. 1, and Quartet No. 1 by Brazil’s Heitor Villa-Lobos, along with shorter works by Spain’s Joaquín Turina and composers from Argentina, Cuba and Panama, and a rhythmic 2000 work by Venezuelan composer Efrain Amaya.
