On Wednesday, March 27 at 7:30 p.m., The American String Quartet graces the stage at the Davis Art Center. The final concert of the 2023-24 Chamber Music Series spotlights the American String Quartet, internationally recognized as one of the world’s finest quartets, spending decades honing the luxurious sound for which it is famous. The quartet, Peter Winograd and Laurie Carney on violin, Daniel Avshalomov on viola, and Wolfram Koessel on cello, celebrated its 45th anniversary in 2019, and, in its years of touring, has performed in all fifty states and has appeared in the most important concert halls worldwide. The group’s presentations of the complete quartets of Beethoven, Schubert, Schoenberg, Barto, and Mozart have won widespread critical acclaim, and their MusicMasters Complete Mozart String Quartets, performed on a matched quartet set of instruments by Stradivarius, are widely considered to have set the standard for this repertoire.
