MIDDLEBURY — The members of the Escher String Quartet bring their individual sound, artistry and cohesiveness to their Middlebury Performing Arts Series debut on Friday, March 8. The program will include Beethoven’s second “Razumovsky” Quartet, Britten’s Quartet No. 3 in D, and Mendelssohn’s String Quartet, Opus 44, No. 1.
“Put simply, this group has all the qualities necessary to be the next Emerson or Juilliard Quartet … rare musical insight and a profound level of cohesion,” reported the Denver Post.
Championed by members of the Emerson String Quartet, the Eschers became the BBC New Generation Artists for 2010-2012. Having completed a three-year residency with the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center’s “CMS Two” program, the ensemble has already performed at prestigious venues and festivals around the world including Alice Tully Hall, the Kennedy Center, the Louvre, the Ravinia and Caramoor Festivals, and Wigmore Hall, to name a few.
The concert will take place at 8 p.m. in the Mahaney Center for the Arts Concert Hall, 72 Porter Field Road in Middlebury, just off Route 30 south. Admission is free (no tickets are required); for more information, call 443-MIDD (6433), or go online to go.middlebury.edu/arts.
