Ciompi Quartet - in concert
Ciompi Quartet with Adrian Lo, guest viola
The Ciompi Quartet was founded at Duke University in 1965 by the renowned Italian violinist Giorgio Ciompi (pronounced CHOM-pee). All its members are professors at Duke and play a leading role in its cultural life, in addition to traveling widely throughout the year for performances. In a career that includes many hundreds of concerts and spans five continents, the Ciompi Quartet has developed a reputation for performances of real intelligence and musical sophistication, and for a warm, unified sound that is enhanced by each player’s strong individual voice. With a maturity and insight born of wide experience, the Ciompi Quartet projects the heart and soul of the music, in a repertoire that ranges from well-known masterpieces to works by today’s most communicative composers.
The members of Ciompi Quartet are Eric Pritchard, Hsiao-mei Ku, Jonathan Bagg, and Fred Raimi.
