Thursday, April 11, 2013 @ 8:00 pm

Paris-based Diotima presents music of composers spanning the last 50 years: Henri Dutilleux’s “Ainsi la Nuit”, Toshio Hosokawa’s “Silent Flowers”, and two works from Hugh Levick: “The Unimagined” and “Empire Inc.”


Their repertoire of the Diotima String Quartet ranges from Haydn to the composers of our time, with particular focus on the Classical period, French Romanticism, the early Twentieth Century, and a selection of major works from the last 50 years. An equally significant part of their activity is the performance and dissemination of newly commissioned works. Diotima String Quartet have performed all around the world, including Wigmore Hall, Library of Congress, Frick Collection, Venice Biennale, Musica Strasbourg, and Auditorium du Louvre. Residencies have included Harvard University, University of Minnesota, Kunstfest Weimar, Wissenschaftskolleg Berlin, and Fondation Royaumont.
