Visiting ArtistsBorromeo String Quartet
The Williams College Department of Music presents the Borromeo String Quartet in concert on Friday, April 11 at 8:00 p.m. in Brooks-Rogers Recital Hall on the Williams campus. These free events are open to the public.
The concert features the music of Bela Bartok. The Borromeo String Quartet plays three of the Hungarian composer’s string quartets: No. 2, 4, and 6.
The Borromeo String Quartet has established itself as notable string quartet. The Chicago Tribune calls the Borromeo String Quartet “a remarkably accomplished string quartet, not simply for its high technical polish and refined tone, but more importantly for the searching musical insights it brings.”
The quartet includes Nicholas Kitchen and Kristopher Tong, violin; Mai Motobuchi, viola; and Yeesun Kim, cello.
The Borromeo Quartet have received many awards throughout their 24 year career, including Lincoln Center’s Avery Fisher Career Grant, and Martin E. Segal Award, Chamber Music America’s Cleveland Quartet Award, the Young Concert Artists International Auditions, and top prize at the International String Quartet Competition in Evian, France.
The event is sponsored by the W. Ford Schumann ’50 Performing Arts Endowment.
