Learning to Listen: Dalí Quartet

Saturday, March 28, 2020 |  7 p.m. | Ely Room, Wyndham Alumnae House

No reservations or tickets required. 

Latin soul meets classical grace—with the spirit and imagination of Salvador Dalí—in this intimate performance. The quartet will perform selected movements from:

  • String Quartet No. 3 in E Flat Major (Allegro, Pastorale, Adantino, Menuetto, Allegro Presto agitato) by Juan Crisóstomo de Arriaga (1806-1826), the Spanish Mozart.
  • String Quartet No. 1, Op. 20 (Allegro violento ed agitato, Viivacissimo, Calmo e poetico, Allegramente rústico) by Alberto Ginastera (Argentina, 1916-1983), the South American Bartok.
  • String Quartet in G minor, Op. 10 (Animé et très décidé, Assez vif et bien rythmè, Andantino, doucement expressif, Très modéré) by Claude Debussy (1862-1918), the French Master of Impressionism.

Trained by world-renowned artists, members of the Dalí Quartet are from Venezuela, Puerto Rico and the U.S., and have studied at esteemed institutions such as the Cleveland Institute of Music, Yale University, Indiana University Bloomington, and the Simón Bolivar Conservatory in Caracas, Venezuela. The quartet is based in Philadelphia, Pa.
