Take a musical journey through the whimsical world of Central European composers with the Escher String Quartet, hailed by the Boston Globe as “a dark ambrosial brew all its own.” After giving us a spectacular performance of Bartok’s String Quartet No. 2 last season, the group will offer Bartok’s powerful String Quartet No. 3, as well as quartets by Zemlinsky and Dvořák. There will be a pre-concert talk with Dr. Richard Strawser at 3:15 pm.

For tickets, visit https://escherstringquartet.eventbrite.com or http://www.marketsquareconcerts.org/concerts .  Remaining tickets will be available at the door.

A former BBC New Generation Artist, the Escher Quartet has performed at the BBC Proms and is a regular guest at Wigmore Hall. In its home town of New York, the ensemble serves as Season Artists of The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, where it has presented the complete Zemlinsky Quartets Cycle as well as being one of five quartets chosen to collaborate in a complete presentation of Beethoven’s string quartets. Last season, the quartet toured with CMS to China. The quartet has also recorded the complete Zemlinsky String Quartets in two volumes, released on the Naxos label in 2013 and 2014 respectively, to accolades including five stars in the Guardian with “Classical CD of the Year,” a Recommendation in The Strad, “Recording of the Month” on MusicWeb International and a nomination for a BBC Music Magazine Award.
