The acclaimed and fearless Escher String Quartet performs at Vassar College’s Skinner Hall of Music on Sunday, November 6 at 3 p.m. A former BBC New Generation Artist, the ensemble serves as Season Artists of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center. Adventurous in their repertoire and willing to travel far outside the borders of traditional chamber music, the Escher Quartet has collaborated with jazz saxophonist Joshua Redman, vocalist Kurt Elling and legendary Latin artist Paquito D’Rivera, and tours regularly with Grammy Award-winning guitarist Jason Vieaux.
The program at Vassar will feature Mendelssohn’s Quartet in D Major, Op. 44, No. 1; Bartók’s Quartet No. 2, Op. 17; and Dvorák’s Piano Quintet featuring Vassar music faculty member Todd Crow. This concert is free and open to the public. Vassar College is located at 124 Raymond Avenue in Poughkeepsie. For more information, visit www.vassar.edu.
