The Duke University Department of Music welcomes Lithuanian pianist Ieva Jokubaviciute to its faculty in 2020. Acclaimed by the New York Times as "an artist of commanding technique, refined temperament and persuasive insight," the Ciompi Quartet are thrilled to collaborate with her on the second program of their season. The Ciompi offer the world premiere of Duke composer John Supko's quartet, "soleil noir," originally scheduled for April 2020. Jokubaviciute joins the Ciompi for César Franck's Piano Quintet in F Minor, a late-romantic masterpiece defined by its cyclic structure and harmonies.
