Balourdet Quartet

A young ensemble on a meteoric rise

Sun, Feb 26, 2023 - Tickets: $30–$40

A young ensemble on a meteoric rise, the Balourdet Quartet is in residence at the New England Conservatory’s Professional String Quartet Program. They received the Grand Prize at the 2021 Concert Artists Guild Victor Elmaleh Competition, the top prize awarded in the 2021 Premio Paolo Borciani in Italy, the Gold Medal at the 2020 Fischoff Competition, and Chamber Music America’s 2021 Classical Commissioning Grant.

Their program is entitled Serenade and the quartet offers this note about it:
We are often asked how we develop unity in our voice as a quartet and one of the answers we love to give is that we sing together. Singing is humanity’s key to musical expression and this program celebrates the human voice and the voice of the Balourdet Quartet. From the operatic nature of the Wolf, the tender lyricism and warmth in the Mendelssohn, and the Cavatina in Beethoven op. 130,this program showcases some of the quartet repertoire’s most touching lyrical moments.

Program
Hugo Wolf: Italian Serenade
Felix Mendelssohn: String Quartet No. 4 in E minor, Op. 44 No. 2
Ludwig van Beethoven: String Quartet No. 13 in B-flat Major, Op. 130 with Große Fuge, Op. 133
