The concert is sold out for advance purchase. The Box Office at Baldwin Auditorium will start a waiting list at 7 pm on the night of the performance to fill any remaining open seats.
The Ciompi Quartet launches its bold 2013/2014 season with a sampling from across the centuries. The program opens with the first of Haydn’s opus 76 quartets, the crowning achievement from the father of the string quartet. It continues with Shostakovich’s 12th quartet, that modern master’s nod to the tonal experimentation then sweeping the musical world. And it concludes with a quintessentially Carolinian chamber work, the Appalachian Concerto that blends a string quartet with acclaimed bluegrass ensemble the Kruger Brothers.
