Colorado Quartet to Perform at Bryn Mawr
The Colorado Quartet, whose members have received international acclaim for their musical integrity, impassioned playing and lyrical finesse, will play at Bryn Mawr College's Thomas Great Hall at 8 p.m. on Friday, March 23, as part of the College's Performing Arts Series.
The Colorado Quartet's inspiring style combines a deep scholarly knowledge of the quartet literature with energy, passion and a focus on fine details.
The ensemble regularly performs the complete Beethoven Quartets, most recently in Berlin, making them the first female quartet to have performed the Beethoven cycle in both North America and in Europe. The Colorado Quartet commemorated the 50th anniversary of Béla Bartók's death in 1995 with the first complete performance of the Bartók String Quartets to take place in Philadelphia.
The Colorado Quartet has toured more than 20 countries and performed in major cities across the globe; the foursome has won both the Banff International String Quartet Competition and the Naumburg Chamber Music Award. It is the quartet-in-residence at Bard College.
"These four women are the musical equals of any string quartet in the world. That's a bold statement, but the musicians have the goods to back it up," said The Seattle Times.
