DUBLIN GUITAR QUARTET
SUNDAY, OCTOBER 22, 2023, 2:00 PM


"A quartet with a difference" said the Irish Times, and that difference is these Dubliners' unique devotion to performing contemporary music. With the help of their eight and eleven string guitars, they create, "a near orchestral palette of sound backed up by hall-filling power" Washington Post.  Their program includes some composers new to us, and others we have already grown to love.

Wojciech Kilar: Orawa

Philip Glass: Piano Etudes nos. 2, 9, 16, 20 

Rachel Grimes: Book of Leaves

ATOS TRIO

SATURDAY, MARCH 2, 2024, 7:30 PM

When violinist Annette von Hehn, pianist Thomas Hoppe, and cellos Stefan Heinemeyer formed a trio in Berlin in 2002, they bonded together so closely that they chose an acronym of their names as the group's title. Two decades of triumph on the world's concert stages have only intensified this artistic unity.
