Calidore Quartet coming to Oakmont


Oakmont Berger Center

Thursday February 12th 2015 - 1:30pm to

One of the hottest young string quartets to appear in the last few years is coming to Oakmont’s Berger Center on Feb. 12. Music at Oakmont presents The Calidore Quartet, a group which has already won major competitions, toured extensively, and garnered critical acclaim both here and abroad. Coming together only four years ago, the ensemble recently made their Washington, D.C. debut, eliciting praise from the Washington Post, “The level of micro-nuance the group achieves with timing and tempo is quite rare. The ebb and flow must be meticulously rehearsed but also sound natural and spontaneous. The quartet’s clarity in pianissimo passages also is extraordinary, and its intonation (the hardest thing of all in a medium that seems to amplify the tiniest flaw) is already world class.”

The concert starts at 1:30 p.m. on Feb. 12 at Berger Center in Oakmont. The program will include works by Haydn, Beethoven and Bartk. For more details and program notes, visit www.musicatoakmont.org. Music at Oakmont concerts are open to all Oakmont residents and their invited guests.
