About This Performance

The Michelangelo Quartet was formed in 2002 by four like-minded musicians: distinguished soloists, chamber musicians and teachers who shared an irresistible desire to play chamber music with one another. Featuring the great Japanese-born violist Nobuko Imai—“one of the most outstanding viola players of our time” (The Herald)—this international foursome has won critical acclaim for its collective virtuosity, wisdom, musicality and intensity of feeling, all of which will be on display in a PCMS debut program that features one of Haydn’s most sublime late quartets.

Haydn: Quartet in G Major, Op. 77, No. 1
Shostakovich: Quartet No. 3, Op. 73
Beethoven: Quartet in E Minor, Op. 59, No. 2

This concert is part of Global Philadelphia's 2015 Exposition.
