The next concert of the Buffalo Chamber Music Society’s 89th season is on Tuesday, April 16 at 8 p.m. in the Mary Seaton Room of Kleinhans Music Hall. The Keller Quartet will perform quartets by Bartók, Shostakovich and Tchaikovsky.
Founded in 1987 at the Liszt Conservatory of Music in Budapest, the Keller Quartet achieved their international breakthrough in 1990 when winning all prizes and special awards at the Evian and Borciani Competitions.
Even though the quartet members have all completed their degrees as soloists, string quartet playing has always been their first choice. Three of the Liszt Conservatory’s most renowned professors took care of the young musicians and can be regarded as their mentors to this very day: Sandór Devich, András Mihály and György Kurtág, who has also composed works for the quartet. The Keller Quartet has recorded the “Art of the Fugue” by Bach as well as the complete works for string quartet by their mentor Kurtag.
Tickets for this concert are $20 and may be purchased at the door or online at www.bflochambermusic.org.
