MARIA BACHMANN, violin
KATHRYN LOCKWOOD, viola
ASTRID SCHWEEN, cello
Masters of both the traditional string quartet repertoire and the works of recent artists who delight in bending the "Classical" mode, the artistic energies of this unusual foursome are fueled by this contrast of stylistic extremes.
The quartet discography comprises nearly one dozen CD recordings and a 1998 video documentary of the ensemble which recently appeared on Public Television stations nationwide.
In addition to their contributions to the Lark Quartet, each member of the ensemble is professionally distinguished in her own right. Graduates of esteemed institutions such as Julliard and The Curtis Institute, these musicians are prize-winning soloists, recording artists, and university faculty whose talents mingle and multiply in the classic quartet.
Back by popular demand, this fine ensemble will once again provide a splendid evening of music for those fortunate enough to find themselves at the Athenaeum.
