Chamber Music Master Class with Calidore String Quartet
The Calidore String Quartet is one of the premier chamber ensembles in a generation of exciting new chamber talent. Since forming in Los Angeles, the spirited Calidore - a portmanteau of its native state and the French word for "golden" - has gathered an impressive list of honors, including a Stony Brook residency and the University of Michigan's inaugural M-Prize. This vivacious quartet, known for its attunement to subtle dynamic shifts, was hailed by Gramophone as the "epitome of confidence and finesse, engaged in a series of engrossing, sympathetic, and intense conversations." This master class, which is open to the public, is presented in association with Duke Performances. Calidore String Quartet will perform a concert in Baldwin Auditorium on Saturday, Dec. 1 as part of DP's Chamber Arts Series.
