Opus One

Artist's Corner

Overview

Opus One brings together four of the leading musicians of our time:  pianist Anne-Marie McDermott; violinist Ida Kavafian; violist Steven Tenenbom; and cellist Peter Wiley. They are veterans as well as present members of the world's most prestigious chamber groups, including the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, Tashi, the Beaux Arts Trio and the Orion and Guarneri String Quartets. Opus One is the result of a mutual love of music making between these extraordinary instrumentalists and friends. The group made their debut on October 23, 1998 at the Library of Congress in Washington, DC to a packed, enthusiastic house. Subsequent seasons have included recital debuts in New York, Detroit, Los Angeles, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, San Diego and Philadelphia, all to great acclaim. Their orchestral debut was with the Chattanooga Symphony, performing Beethoven's "Triple Concerto" and a work written by Douglas Lowry especially for the entire group with orchestra. Opus One has presented several other world premieres as well.

"Opus One sang and soared, trilled and thrilled. Its sense of musical coordination was confident, its grasp of artistic subtleties, strong......there was a keen sense of teamwork and mutual support."
