Cornell College Music Monday: Amara Piano Quartet @ King Chapel
Feb 17 @ 7:30 pm

The Amara Piano Quartet, founded in 2012 and in residence at Iowa State University, has shown a deep commitment to performing new music. One of its earliest projects was a concert of George Tsontakis’ chamber works. This led to commissions by Tsontakis for the Amara Quartet and a 2016 recording, which Gramophone magazine described as “play[ed] with vibrant and sensitive expressivity.”

At Cornell they will perform their latest Tsontakis’ commission, Piano Quartet No. 4, as well as Frank Bridge’s “Phantasie” and Gabriel Fauré’s Piano Quartet in G minor, Op. 45. The piano quartet features a pianist, violinist, violist, and cellist.
