About the Artist

If you heard the Calidore Quartet on opening night of our mainstage series collaborating with the Emerson Quartet, here’s a great opportunity to get to know them in a different context. They put together a program of the last quartets written by beloved composers Mendelssohn and Mozart before their untimely deaths.

This informal concert will feature music introduced by the artists. Audiences are welcome to stay afterwards and talk with the artists.

“The Calidores have all the components to make them a first-rate quartet — four strong individuals, a common goal to bring the music to life and to the audience, and at the same time being very respectful of the composers’ wishes in regard to the score”

- Philip Setzer, Violinist of the Emerson String Quartet
