Returning to Kohl Mansion three years after a highly lauded performance that incorporated projections of original hand-written manuscripts by Beethoven and Mendelssohn, the Borromeo String Quartet brings back to our stage its innovative and deeply probing explorations of the great standards of the chamber repertoire. The quartet will perform Beethoven’s Grosse Fugue, Op. 133 and String Quartet No. 15 in A minor, Op. 132, as well as Shostakovich’s Quartet No. 8, Op.110. The Chicago Tribune calls the Borromeo “a remarkably accomplished string quartet, not simply for its high technical polish and refined tone, but more importantly for the searching musical insights it brings.” The Borromeo has been Quartet in Residence at the New England Conservatory of Music for more than twenty years and collaborates extensively with the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center in New York, and the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C.
