"Style, energy, and a sense of risk. These four young Frenchman made the music smile" (The Guardian). The Paris-based Quatuor Van Kuijk comes to the Library to present an impressive program that includes a U.S. premiere by the French composer Benjamin Attahir. Praised by Gramophone for their “Editor’s Choice” Mendelssohn recording–“…a Mendelssohn recital of rare flair and insight”–the quartet is celebrating its tenth anniversary on a high note. So join us for an evening of vital original music, stylish arrangements, and musical excellence all around.
There will be no preconcert talk for this event.
