York College Division of Music Presents a Guest Artist Recital:The Lydian String Quartet
April 15, 2016, 7:30 p.m.
DeMeester Recital Hall, Wolf Hall
This concert is made possible by a generous gift from the Boustead Family Foundation.
Since 1980, the Lydian String Quartet has embraced the full range of string quartet repertory with curiosity, virtuosity, and dedication to the highest artistic ideals of music making.
The LSQ has inspired critical acclaim worldwide. According to Sunil Freeman of The Washington Post, “They revealed a fire that makes all timeless music forever contemporary.” Jeremy Eichler of The Boston Globe has described their playing as “full of subtlety, tonal refinement, and a sense of accumulated musical wisdom.”
Their interpretive mastery of standard and contemporary repertoire has resulted in prizes at international competitions in Canada, France, England, and in New York (Naumburg Award for Chamber Music), and concerts throughout the U.S. and abroad.
Their recordings reflect their diverse and far-reaching repertoire, including works by Beethoven, Brahms, Ives, Schubert, as well as American composers Harbison, Hyla, Ornstein and Wyner. The Quartet hosts a biennial composition prize, and it is on the faculty of Brandeis University in Waltham, MA.
