Lee University will welcome the Schumann String Quartet to Pangle Hall in continuation of the Presidential Concert Series on Monday, Feb. 4, at 7:30 p.m. 

Review for Schumann String Quartet

The quartet comprises brothers Erik, Ken, and Mark Schumann and violist Liisa Randalu. Since 2016, they have been a part of a three-year residency at the Chamber Music Society of the Lincoln Center in New York City. Also in 2016, they received the Newcomer Award at the BBC Music Magazine Awards in London for their CD “Mozart Ives Verdi.” 

The quartet's other awards include Premier Prix at the 2013 Concours International de Quatuor à Cordes de Bordeaux, the Music Prize of the Jürgen Ponto Foundation in the chamber music category in 2014, and First Prize in the 2012 Schubert and Modern Music competition in Graz, Austria. 

The Schumann Quartett has been touring European countries such as Austria, Italy, and Switzerland, as well as in South America and the United States. They also performed at Mozart Week in Salzburg and Mozartfest in Wurzburg. 

The three Schumann brothers, who are of German and Japanese descent, have played music together since childhood. They recruited Randalu, a native of Estonia, in 2012 to complete their ensemble. 

The quartet’s most recent album, “Intermezzo,” has been received enthusiastically, both at home and abroad. Their previous album, “Landscapes,” was selected as editor’s choice by BBC Music Magazine in 2017. 

Tickets for the concert are $15 for adults and $5 for students and seniors and are available for purchase at the Lee University Box Office in the Dixon Center or by contacting 614-8343, one week prior to the event, between 3-6 p.m. Tickets are also available at https://www.showclix.com/event/Schumann-quartet.
