Ciompi Quartet Downtown Classics with Patrick Yim, violist
This short concert takes place at NorthStar Church of the Arts, 220 West Geer St., Durham. The Ciompi Quartet will perform Johannes Brahms' String Quintet #2 in G Major, Op. 111.
Praised for his "deeply expressive, finely nuanced playing" (Strad Magazine) and "superb performances" (Fanfare), Patrick Yim made his solo debut with the Honolulu Symphony and has performed chamber music with Juilliard, Emerson, St. Lawrence, Pacifica, and Ying Quartet members, and musicians from the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, Cleveland Orchestra, and New York Philharmonic.
Since its founding in 1965 by the renowned Italian violinist Giorgio Ciompi, the Ciompi Quartet of Duke University has delighted audiences and impressed critics around the world. All its members are professors at Duke, where they teach instrumental lessons, coordinate and coach chamber music, and perform across campus in concert halls, libraries, dormitories and classrooms.
