Review for the Modigliani Quartet: 

Referred to as “one of the best quartets in the world” (Süddeutsche Zeitung) and known for its “bright, youthful sound which is invigorating” to audiences (The Guardian), the Paris-based Modigliani Quartet was founded in 2003 and is featured regularly in prominent international series and on the world’s most prestigious stages.

In addition to annual tours in the United States and Asia, the quartet has performed across Europe at venues including Wigmore Hall, the Paris Philharmonie, the The´a^tre des Champs- Elyse´es, the Berlin Philharmonie, the Saint-Petersburg Philharmonia, and the Elbphil-harmonie in Hamburg.

Pieces such as Puccini’s “Crisantemi,” Beethoven’s “String Quartet in D Major,” and Smetana’s “String Quartet No. 1 (From my Life)” will be performed at the Thursday evening concert.

The Modigliani Quartet has won multiple awards throughout its career, including three First Prizes successively at the Eindhoven International Competition and the esteemed Young Concert Artists Auditions in New York.

Tickets for the concert are $15 for adults, $5 for students and seniors, and are available for purchase on Eventbrite.com or at the Lee University Box Office in the Dixon Center beginning Thursday, April 6. The box office is open weekdays 3-6 p.m. and can be reached by calling 614-8343.
