Baldwin Auditorium, Duke East Campus

The Calidore String Quartet is one of the premier chamber ensembles in a generation of exciting new chamber talent. The vivacious quartet was hailed by Gramophone as the "epitome of confidence and finesse, engaged in a series of engrossing, sympathetic, and intense conversations." Calidore will make its Durham debut on Saturday, December 1 with a pair of revered compositions by Prokofiev and Schumann, and a new commission for Pulitzer-winning North Carolinian Caroline Shaw entitled First Essay: Nimrod - an ode to the writing of Marilynne Robinson that reveals the intricate possibilities within a simple tune.
