Harlem Quartet and Aldo López-Gavilán IN PERSON

Known for their flamboyant and dynamic style, Harlem Quartet advances diversity in classical music while engaging audiences with underperformed repertoire. From their 2009 performance for former President and First Lady Barack and Michelle Obama to a highly successful South African tour, the quartet performs around the world with such distinguished artists as Itzhak Perlman, Ida Kavafian, Jeremy Denk, Chick Corea and, as in this program, Aldo López-Gavilán. A Cuban piano virtuoso and brother of quartet member Ilmar Gavilán, López-Gavilán is praised for both his classical and jazz technique. He wrote his first composition at age five, and in this program, we hear five of his exuberant works.
