Dalí Quartet

This is a past event. Thursday, January 31 at 7:30pm 9:30pm

The Old Church Concert Hall 1422 S.W. 11th Ave., Portland, OR 97201

"One of the most popular ensembles brought to town by Friends of Chamber Music, the entertaining string quartet composed of members from Venezuela, Puerto Rico, and the US returns for a program of 20th-century and contemporary Latin American classical music. The program features a tango ballet by Argentina’s great nuevo tango composer Astor Piazzolla, a powerful quartet by his countryman Alberto Ginastera, another by Brazil’s Heitor Villa-Lobos, and other hidden gems you’re not likely to hear on any standard American classical chamber music program." - Oregon Arts Watch

Presented by Friends of Chamber Music. The Dalí Quartet’s passionate energy is poured into everything they do, generating critical and audience acclaim. Trained by world-renowned artists, members of the Dalí Quartet are from Venezuela, Puerto Rico and the United States. Their captivating performances of Latin-American repertoire create an extraordinary concert experience that takes listeners on an eclectic journey of rhythm and sound.

“The Dalí Quartet’s Latin American program alternately glimmered and blazed.” - The Philadelphia Inquirer
