The Cavani Quartet's Oct. 15-20 residency at CU-Boulder includes two performances at Grusin Music Hall and master classes, lectures and workshops on campus and in the community.

As quartet-in-residence at the renowned Cleveland Institute of Music since 1988, and winner of numerous accolades, including the prestigious Naumburg Award, the Cavani Quartet has been described by the Washington Post as “completely engrossing, powerful and elegant.” Hailed as dynamic and inspirational teachers as well as performers, the Cavani String Quartet succeeds like few others in communicating the sheer joy of music making.

Joining the quartet as guest artist for its Oct. 19-20 performances in Grusin Music Hall will be CU-Boulder College of Music associate professor of viola and Cavani Quartet co-founder Erika Eckert.

The Oct. 19-20 program will feature:

  Schubert — String Quartet No.10 in E Flat Major  D. 87

  Shostakovich — String Quartet No. 9 Opus 117

  Mendelssohn — String Quintet No. 2 in B Flat Major  Opus 87
