Lauded for their “intelligence” and “immensely satisfying” playing by the New York Times, the quartet has garnered worldwide praise as one of today’s exceptional string quartets. Ensemble-in-residence at Florida International University, the group was formed in 1991 while its founding members were students at the Julliard School. The Amernet advocates for neglected works of the past and aims to enliven the concert experience through its innovative programming. For this performance, the quartet will be joined by pianist Shoshana Telner. Among other treats, the program will feature Erich Korngold’s Piano Quintet Opus 15 and Pavel Haas’s String Quartet #2 “From the Monkey Mountains.” See sota.mcmaster.ca
