Argus Quartet

Co-First Prize Winner, 2017 CAG Competition

Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall

Sponsored by Marilyn G. and Joseph B. Schwartz, longtime friends of CAG

The Argus Quartet has quickly emerged as one of today’s most dynamic and versatile young ensembles, winning First Prize at both the 2017 CAG Victor Elmaleh Competition and the 2017 M-Prize Chamber Arts Competition. As the current Graduate Resident String Quartet at The Juilliard School, Argus is dedicated to reinvigorating the audience-performer relationship through innovative concerts and diverse programming. In that spirit, the ensemble’s repertoire includes not only masterworks of the chamber music canon, but also a wide range of pieces by living composers.

The program will include:

Haydn: String Quartet in B minor, Op. 33 No. 1
Juri SeoRespiri
Christopher Theofanidis: Visions and Miracles
Ted Hearne: Overlay (For David Lang)
Janáček: String Quartet No. 2, “Intimate Letters”

About the Pop Up:
Talis Gallery Harlem Pop Up presents world-class photography in a newly-renovated two-family townhouse on a tree-lined street in the heart of Harlem. While the spectacular townhouse is for sale, the exhibition showcases unique framed and unframed images in a relaxed environment that promotes the elegance, beauty and magic of photography.

About the artist:
For more than five decades, Ralph Gibson has dominated surreal photography. He creates images that incorporate everyday fragments with sensual and mysterious undertones, and through them, he builds narrative meaning. Taking pictures of simple things, he transforms them into something arresting, giving the final product contemplative significance. Gibson’s photographs are in the permanent collections of over one hundred museums, he has published over fifty art books, and his works have been in over two hundred exhibitions worldwide.
