The Cremona Quartet is noted for its lustrous sound, refined musicianship, and stylistic versatility. The quartet was founded in Cremona, Italy, the center of violin building and performance where Stradivari and Guarneri perfected their craft. Celebrating its 22nd anniversary, the quartet has toured extensively in Europe, the United States, South America, and Asia, appeared at leading festivals, and performed regularly on radio and television broadcasts. For their Bailey Hall performance, the Cremona Quartet presents a program of works by famed Italian composers Boccherini, Puccini, Respighi, and Verdi.
“It’s a rare blend: breadth of sound and capriciousness combined with perfect tuning and ensemble has the players sounding absolutely of one voice… Nothing less than life-affirming.” Gramophone
