Ebene Quartet debuts April 15 in Pittsburgh
The French Ebene Quartet will make its local debut April 15 when it plays a concert of 18th- and 19th-century music for the Pittsburgh Chamber Music Society.
The ensemble, which studied with the Ysaye Quartet and a founding member of the Takacs Quartet, has won several awards in Germany and has a burgeoning discography on Virgin Classics. The Ebene Quartet is known for its adventuresome programming, which includes jazz and other arrangements.
The program will feature Felix Mendelssohn's final major work, String Quartet No. 6, written in memory of his sister Fanny, who died a few months earlier. The concert will conclude with Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky's String Quartet No. 1, which features an irresistibly beautiful slow movement.
The concert starts at 7:30 p.m. at Carnegie Music Hall, Oakland. Admission is $35; $15 for students.
