Recital Series: Dudok Quartet Amsterdam

“The young Dudok Quartet Amsterdam is enthralling from start to finish”
The Telegraph (UK)

The Dudok Quartet Amsterdam is one of most wide-ranging string quartets of our time, with heartfelt performances that spotlight the essence of their music—of both contemporary works and classics that feel revelatory and new. The esteemed ensemble makes their New York debut with programs focusing on works by Haydn and Ligeti that artfully showcase their versatility and superb musicianship. They open their residency with an evening of works that employ contrapuntal techniques in a variety of forms, intertwined with ancient short pieces ranging from the 11th century to J.S. Bach. The dramatic qualities in the works of Haydn and Ligeti are amplified in the second program, enlightened by Mendelssohn’s final string quartet, written as a deeply personal requiem for his suddenly deceased younger sister.
