Jazz, New Music, World Music
Sirius Quartet pushes beyond the conventional vocabulary of string instruments with exhilarating repertoire and unequalled improvisational fire. Born and bred in New York City’s downtown music scene, Sirius has performed at major venues, including Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall, Merkin Concert Hall, the Andy Warhol Museum, LACMA, Stuttgart Jazz and the Beijing Music Festival. Having premiered works by the likes of Phil Kline, Uri Caine and Richard Einhorn, Sirius makes significant contributions to the quartet repertoire with bold original works by its own members. These conservatory-trained performer/composers shine with the precision of classical music and a raw energy rarely witnessed in the concert hall.
