Argus String Quartet Performs Works by Cerrone, Seo, Theofanidis and Hearne
Argus is dedicated to reinvigorating the audience-performer relationship through innovative concerts and diverse repertoire: connecting with and building up a community of engaged listeners is at the core of the quartet’s mission. The Quartet also believes that today’s ensembles can honor the storied chamber music traditions of our past while forging a new path forward. In that spirit, their repertoire includes not just staples of the chamber music canon but also a large number of pieces by living composers.
Winner of a 2015 Rome Prize and a finalist for the 2014 Pulitzer Prize, the Brooklyn-based composer Christopher Cerrone is internationally acclaimed for compositions which range from opera and orchestral to chamber music and electronic. Throughout, his music is characterized by a subtle handling of timbre and resonance, a deep literary fluency, and a flair for multimedia collaborations.
