Berlin Philharmonic Piano Quartet
March 6, 2020 | 7:30 pm
“[They]…showed an extreme amount of talent and dedication to their art. Each of the pieces they played was a pleasure to listen to, and the Elfman piece in particular was a blast.” – Daily Nebraskan
A resident ensemble of the Berlin Philharmoniker since 1985, this highly praised quartet is a collaboration between three permanent members of that great orchestra: Konzertmeister Andreas Buschatz, violist Matthew Hunter, and cellist Knut Weber, along with the prominent concert pianist Markus Groh. The ensemble is committed to not only representing the standard repertoire of classical, romantic, and modern pieces, but to also finding undiscovered masterpieces of the literature. This performance includes the Georgia debut of Academy Award-nominated composer Danny Elfman’s composition for piano quartet.
Pre-performance talk in Ramsey Concert Hall at 6:45 pm (free admission).
