Quartet121 is a New York City-based string quartet dedicated to the performance of new works. With diverse backgrounds as both soloists and collaborators, this concert will be their debut as an ensemble.
The debut concert of Quartet121 includes pieces that highlight the players’ strengths and tastes. From the high energy of Settori by Neuwirth, to the use of texture and movement in BLEMISH by Agosto, to the strict rhythmic language of Carter in Fragment No. 1, the program showcases the quartet’s commitment to the music they believe in. This concert is sponsored by friend and mentor Reiko Füting.
