Grammy Award Winner Jason Vieaux joins forces with the esteemed Escher Quartet for dance-inspired program

The Escher String Quartet has received acclaim for its profound musical insight and rare tonal beauty. A former BBC New Generation Artist, the quartet has performed at the BBC Proms at Cadogan Hall and is a regular guest at Wigmore Hall, London. In its home town of New York, the ensemble serves as Season Artists of The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, where it has recently performed quartet cycles of Beethoven and Zemlinsky. Grammy-winner Jason Vieaux, “among the elite of today’s classical guitarists” (Gramophone), is the guitarist that goes beyond the classical. Vieaux has earned a reputation for putting his expressiveness and virtuosity at the service of a remarkably wide range of music and he has performed as concerto soloist with over 100 orchestras.
