Belcea Quartet

When: Thu., Oct. 20, 7:30 p.m. 2016

Although they came together more than a decade ago, the members of the Belcea Quartet “still play like a young quartet,” writes the Guardian, “seizing the music’s energy, shocking us out of our seats with every fortissimo.” This is some high-octane praise for a string ensemble, and the Belcea Quartet has earned it with a dynamic approach to chamber music. Drawing on the diverse backgrounds of its players — Romanian violinist Corina Belcea, Polish violist Krzysztof Chorzelski, and French cellist Antoine Lederlin and violinist Axel Schacher — the ensemble breaks traditional boundaries in interpretations of classical and modern-day compositions. Concertgoers with reservations can partake of a preperformance dinner in Mahaney Center for the Arts’ Lower Lobby before reveling in works by Brahms and Schubert.

Price: $6-25.
