The dynamic artists of the Calder Quartet are blazing their own trail in the classical music world. Called "one of America’s most satisfying—and most enterprisingquartets” by the Los Angeles Times, the ensemble of AMFS alumni brings equal passion to both incisive, masterful performances of the classical canon, and the commissioning and performance of works by emerging composers. One such work by composer Paul Wiancko will receive its North American premiere in Aspen.

Calder Quartet’s sensitive and insightful interpretations of classical string quartets will be on full display with both Haydn’s String Quartet in B-flat major and Beethoven’s String Quartet in D major, op. 18, no. 3—a work that reflects the notable influence Haydn had on a young Beethoven.

Closing the program is the Caribbean and Bartók-inspired String Quartet No. 2 by Eleanor Alberga, a Jamaican-born pianist and composer who has established her place as a giant among today’s artists.

Time honored and cutting edge are seamlessly integrated in the Calder Quartet’s textured, refined program of music for Aspen audiences.
