H. Peter Stern Concert Series: Cassatt Quartet
Sunday, October 4
Enjoy an autumn afternoon of classical selections with the Cassatt String Quartet.
The highly acclaimed Cassatt String Quartet has performed throughout North America, Europe, and East Asia, with appearances at New York’s Alice Tully Hall and Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, the Tanglewood Music Theater, the Kennedy Center and Library of Congress in Washington, DC, the Theatre des Champs-Élysee in Paris and Maeda Hall in Tokyo. The Quartet has been presented on major radio stations such as National Public Radio’s Performance Today, Boston’s WGBH, New York’s WQXR and WNYC, and on Canada’s CBC Radio and Radio France.
With a deep commitment to nurturing young musicians, the Cassatt, in residencies at Princeton, Yale, Syracuse University, the University at Buffalo and the University of Pennsylvania, has devoted itself to coaching, conducting sectionals and reading student composers’ works, while offering lively musical presentations in music theory, history and composition. Selected by Chamber Music America, they served as guest artists for their New Music Institute; a series to help presenters market new music to their audiences.
The Cassatt has recorded for the Koch, Naxos, New World, Point, CRI, Tzadik and Albany labels and is named for the celebrated American impressionist painter Mary Cassatt. The Cassatt Quartet [hyperlink] is supported by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature as well as the Amphion, the Aaron Copland and Alice M.Ditson Music Funds.
