About This Performance

Possessing all the elegance and transparency of a painting by their Italian namesake, the Modigliani Quartet brings their distinctively French style and technical finesse back to the Perelman Theater for an evening of string quartet masterpieces. Their “Gallic cool” (New York Times), with its undercurrent of passion, crisp articulation, and rich timbres, is the perfect match for a well-crafted program that highlights the quartet’s “awesome individual and communal brilliance” (Strad Magazine).

Mozart: Quartet in D Minor, K. 421
