Gantner Concert Hall of Haas Fine Arts Center
With an artist's grace and a Caribbean soul, the Dalí Quartet is today's freshest voice in classical and Latin-American music. The young quartet is anchored in both Venezuela's social and music education movement El Sistema and in American classical conservatory traditions — combining the best of both worlds. Its enticing mix of classical/romantic string quartet repertoire with Latin American chamber music takes listeners on an eclectic journey of rhythm and sound.
The quartet is composed of award-winning solo and chamber artists who have appeared at Carnegie Hall, toured widely in Europe and Asia, collaborated with some of the finest composers of our time, and recorded for Dorian, Centaur and Naxos. Trained by world-renowned artists, members of the Dalí Quartet are products of Venezuela’s El Sistema and have studied at esteemed institutions such as the Cleveland Institute of Music, Indiana University Bloomington, Conservatoire de Musique de Genève, Switzerland and the Simón Bolivar Conservatory in Caracas, Venezuela.
The Dalí Quartet has been invited to perform with emphasis on the Latin-Classical connection for television, festivals and presenting organizations from Toronto to Texas,
New York to Venezuela. The ensemble serves as quartet-in-residence for the Arts & Community Network in Pennsylvania, where it hosts the Dalí Quartet Camp and Festival. The Dalí Quartet is also a resident ensemble of the Black Pearl Chamber Orchestra in Philadelphia, which is dedicated to normalizing minority participation in classical music.
