Madeline Island Chamber Music is pleased to present the Arianna String Quartet in concert at Christ Episcopal Church in Bayfield. One of the most accomplished American string quartets today, the Arianna String Quartet garnered national attention upon winning Grand Prize in the Fischoff Chamber Music Competition and have continued to amass accolades since. The Arianna Quartet has appeared throughout North America, South America, Europe, and Asia, with frequent visits to Brazil and South Africa. They have also collaborated with many of the world’s finest musicians, including members of the Vermeer, Tokyo, Cleveland, and Juilliard Quartets, and their live performances have been heard on National Public Radio’s “Performance Today,” and “Live from Music Mountain,” which broadcasts to 125 stations in the U.S. and to 35 countries.
Celebrating their 25th season, in 2016-2017, Arianna returned to Brazil for the FEMUSC Festival in Jaragua do Sul, the Barra Mansa Music Festival, held concerts in Rio de Janeiro, as well as live performances on Chicago’s WFMT radio, and returned to the Madeline Island Chamber Music and Credo Festival. Most recently the quartet released a new CD of Beethoven’s middle quartets, of which FANFARE MAGAZINE wrote, “These may just be the greatest performances of Beethoven’s middle quartets in recorded history.”
Seating is general admission. For best seating options, please arrive early.
