The Aeolus Quartet

The Aeolus Quartet Columbia Residency

Presented in collaboration with the University Concert Series

February 6-8, 2020

Three days of social and working interaction with one of America’s brightest young chamber music groups. This wonderful opportunity brings the Aeolus Quartet to Columbia to work with all string players in the area.

“The players have clearly developed the inner rapport needed for a successful quartet. They listen to each other, and they listen for the beneath-the-surface things a composer is telling them through a score. What was most rewarding…was the way the Aeolus Quartet combined smoothly meshed technique with a sense of spontaneity and discovery.”
