The Amernet String Quartet with Shoshana Telner

Lauded for their “intelligence” and “immensely satisfying” playing by the New York Times, the Amernet String Quartet has garnered worldwide praise and recognition as one of today’s exceptional string quartets.The group will play at McMaster on Friday, March 15.

Ensemble-in-Residence at Florida International University since 2004, the group was formed in 1991, while its founding members were students at the Juilliard School. Amernet rose to international attention after their first season, winning the Gold Medal at the Tokyo International Music Competition in 1992. In 1995, the group was the First Prize winner of the prestigious Banff International String Quartet Competition.

The Amernet also actively advocates for neglected works of the past and aims to enliven the concert experience through its innovative programming.  For this performance the Amernet will be joined by pianist Shoshana Telner.  Their program will feature Hugo Wolf’s “Italian Serenade,” Ernő Dohnányi’s “Quartet in Db-major,” Michel Michelet’s “Elegie, Opus 4” and Erich Korngold’s “Piano Quintet Opus 15.”

The concert will take place in Convocation Hall (Room 213).
