BMC Chamber Series continues with the Escher Quartet

BRATTLEBORO — The Brattleboro Music Center's 2018-19 Chamber Series continues Thursday, Feb. 21, with the Escher Quartet, an American string quartet based in New York City, where they serve as Artists of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center.

The concert is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. at BMC. Tickets are $40 for preferred seating, $20 general admission.

The Escher String Quartet has received acclaim for its expressive, nuanced performances that combine “unusual textural clarity with a rich, blended sound,” according to a news release. The ensemble takes its name from Dutch graphic artist M.C. Escher, inspired by Escher's method of interplay between individual components working together to form a whole.

This foursome - Adam Barnett-Hart and Danbi Um on violin, Pierre Lapointe on viola, and Brook Speltz on cello - has performed at the BBC and is a regular guest at Wigmore Hall in London.

At Lincoln Center in new York, the ensemble has presented the complete Zemlinsky Quartets Cycle as well as being one of five quartets chosen to collaborate in a complete presentation of Beethoven's string quartets.
