Turtle Island Quartet
April 13, 2012
The music of Jimi Hendrix fills the house as the two-time Grammy-award winning Turtle Island Quartet (TIQ) takes the stage. The quartet ventures to Electric Ladyland, tackling works by the legendary guitarist as well as other compositions inspired by his music. TIQ is a singular force in the creation of bold, new trends in chamber music for strings, fusing the classical quartet esthetic with contemporary American music. With phenomenal international appeal, TIQ’s once "alternative" chamber music now firmly inhabits the mainstream with their repertory of cutting edge composers and through performances and recordings with major symphonic ensembles.
