Described by the Washington Post as “completely engrossing powerful and elegant” The Cavani Quartet has dedicated its artistic life to communicating the joy of discovery in the service of some of the most powerful music ever written. “Their artistic excellence, their generous spirit, and their fervent ambassadorship for great music make them unique among America’s greatest string quartets.” The Cavani Quartet continues its unique journey maintaining an energetic balance between performing masterpieces by composers such as Mozart, Beethoven and Bartok; collaborating with living composers; and creating new programming that joins music, poetry, and dance.
The Amici String Quartet was founded in 1985 by four members of The Cleveland Orchestra. The Amici String Quartet consists of Takako Masame (violin) Miho Hashizume (violin), Lynne Ramsey (viola), and Ralph Curry (chello) and performs Beethoven. The Cavani & Amici String Quartets will be coming to Tremont’s Lincoln Park as part of the Arts in August weekend series.
