Diller-Quaile String Quartet Recital

June 15 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

The Diller-Quaile School of Music hosts several faculty concerts each academic year in the School’s beautiful Performance Space. These public concerts are free-of-charge and open to all. A reception with the artists follows each performance.

Quartet-in-Residence of The Diller-Quaile School of Music, DQSQ was founded by Philip Hough in 1988. The Quartet performs a series of concerts at Diller-Quaile each season and has participated in chamber music series in the United States and South America. In addition to presenting a wide variety of masterworks from the “standard” string quartet repertoire, DQSQ has performed new works by contemporary composers, including David Loeb, Coleridge-Taylor Perkinson, Jeremy Beck, Eric Ewazen, and Tomas Ulrich. In 2003, the Quartet commissioned and premiered renowned Brazilian composer Raimundo Penaforte’s Quarteto 3. In 2006 DQSQ commissioned and premiered Eric Ewazen’s Quartet No. 2 “WindSwept,” performing it both at Diller-Quaile and the Juilliard School. Recently, DQSQ has been invited to record examples of Benjamin Britten’s unpublished student works for the Thematic Catalogue project underway at the Britten-Pears Library in Aldeburgh, England.
