Named after the goddess of song and dance in Greek mythology, Terpsichore, the Terpsycordes Quartet is comprised of young, talented musicians from Italy, Bulgaria and Switzerland: violinists Girolamo Bottiglieri and Raya Raytcheva, violist Caroline Cohen and cellist Francois Grin. This multi-award-winning group has been coached by members of world-renowned quartets such as the Budapest String Quartet, Hagen Quartet, LaSalle Quartet and Quator Mosaiques. The four musicians explore connections with nature and spirit through creative interpretations of classical works, and they have a distinctly eclectic style. Paying meticulous attention to the details of the styles of the music they play, they have also won critical acclaim for reworkings of well-known classics, a skill that landed them the 2001 First Prize at the Geneva Conservatory. In this concert they will perform Mozart’s String Quartet No. 14 in G major, K.387, also known as “the spring quartet,” and Schubert’s Death and the Maiden No. 14 in D minor, D810.
