The following description comes from the event organizer.

Hailed by The New York Times as “invariably energetic and finely burnished…playing with earthy vigor,” the Grammy Award-winning Catalyst Quartet combines a serious commitment to diversity, education, and contemporary works with virtuosic playing “reminiscent of great quartets of the past such as the Guarneri and Budapest” (Richmond Times). In this concert, Catalyst concludes their year as CMNW Artists-in-Residence with an exciting evening of Latin-inspired works by Paquito D’Rivera, Astor Piazzolla, and Maurice Ravel, along with George Gershwin’s gorgeous Lullaby.

“Some complain that classical music was written by dead white guys, is performed by white musicians, and listened to by white senior citizens. Luckily, there are groups like the Catalyst Quartet to combat this trend. They serve not only to foster performer diversity but also to promote works by non-white composers…”
