O'Connor String Quartet
Among the most talented and exciting string players on the scene, these four virtuosi combine for an unforgettable evening of explorations in new musical territory. The concert offerings: O'Connor's String Quartet No. 2 "Bluegrass" which features blazingly intricate rhythms" soulful, high lonesome harmonies" achingly beautiful melodies. O'Connor's latest, String Quartet No. 3 "Old-Time" composed on commission for the Quadricentennial of the Hudson River. Also featured are high flying, virtuoso duets with each possible pairing of the group members. All of these celebrated works draw on O'Connor's own well-documented (and uniquely American) musical history.
