CLASSICAL CONCERT: Cambini Quartet Friendship, influence and dissonances

At 8pm

Used to performing in prestigious places like the Louvre in Paris or the Frick Collection in New York, rewarded by critics for their recordings at Naïve-Ambroisie, the musicians of that quartet playing with ancient instruments will delight you.

Founded in 2007 by four young musicians, graduated from the best French schools for classical and baroque studies, the Cambini Quartet is one the rare string quartets to play with ancient instruments.

It provides advanced instruction, hands-on experience, and the practical career development skills to succeed as a self-employed artist in a highly competitive international environment.

Paris 1900, Classical and Modern

Featuring ISA Trio: Jacques Israelievitch (violin), Benjamin Smith (piano) and Jihyun Ahn (cello).

ISA trio revisits the Belle Époque, a period following the Great Depression from 1880 and ending when World War I began in 1914. This period was characterized by social, economic, technological and political improvements. It is, at least, the idyllic vision in thinking in contrast to the horrors of World War I. In retrospect, the Belle Époque was named, shading off upheavals, inconsistencies and challenges of a period that produced the twentieth century.
