FREE Master Class: Fauré Quartett

F. Ludwig Diehn Concert Series
Chandler Recital Hall, Diehn Center
Thursday, Mar 28, 2019 at 12:30 PM (ET)

The Fauré Quartett is right up there with the best ensembles you can listen to today.
– Harald Eggebrecht, Süddeutsche Zeitung, Germany

Players of chamber music today can’t be limited to rules from decades ago. The expectations regarding the diversity of repertoire have changed, creating room for ensembles like the Fauré Quartett, which has established itself as one of the world’s leading piano quartets within just a few years. Dirk Mommertz (piano), Erika Geldsetzer (violin), Sascha Frömbling (viola) and Konstantin Heidrich (cello) use the opportunities arising from these developments to discover new sound fields in chamber music and perform compositions outside the mainstream repertoire.

The Fauré Quartett are visionary in their approach and highly regarded for their experiments and discoveries, be they performances with the NDR Big Band, collaborations with artists like Rufus Wainwright or Sven Helbig, appearances in clubs like the Berghain, Cocoon Club or “Le Poisson Rouge” in New York or TV shows in KIKA or “Rhapsody in School”, getting children excited in chamber music. When they released their album “Popsongs” in 2009, there was a great deal of buzz in the press and audience. In the following year, the ensemble was awarded the ECHO Classic for their album “classic beyond borders”, their second award after their recording of Brahms’ piano quartets (Chamber Music recording of the year, 2008). Other prizes include the German Music Competition, the ensemble prize from Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, international competition and recording awards, Music Prize Duisburg and Brahms prize Schleswig Holstein

Free parking is available in Garage E, 49th Street and Bluestone Avenue, or in the circular lot between the F. Ludwig Diehn Center for the Performing Arts and Webb University Center.
