The Borromeo String Quartet is in its 4th residency at CSU. On Friday night, April 10, they will perform at CSU in Griffin Concert Hall in the University of the Arts.
The Borromeo String Quartet is perhaps the first classical ensemble to perform "paperless," using Macintosh computers instead of paper scores.
Nicholas Kitchen, Violin, Kristopher Tong, Violin, Mai Motobuchi, Viola, and Yeesun Kim, Cello, each use a computer screen to display four-part scores. Publicist Joseph Correia explains that the "page turning" is done unobtrusively using foot pedals.
These masterful and dynamic performers can be seen in concert at Colorado State this coming Friday, April 10.
CSU's School of the Arts is pleased to present this Virtuoso Series concert featuring Guest Artist Borromeo String Quartet. The concert will be followed by a Meet the Artist reception.
Considered “simply the best there is,” by the Boston Globe, the critically acclaimed Borromeo String Quartet is one of the most sought after string quartets in the world.
Borromeo, in its 4th residency at CSU, play a late Beethoven quartet (op. 131), and are joined by the CSU Faculty String Quartet for an octet performance to celebrate Mendelssohn-Bartholdy’s 200th birthday!
Tickets are $5/CSU students and $15/public.
