New Classical Featured Ensemble – 10/11/21 – 10/24/21
In this week’s New Classical channel, we are excited to feature the Spektral Quartet. The quartet has received multiple Grammy nominations, as well as one Latin Grammy award. Spektral also takes great pride in its home city of Chicago: championing the work of local composers, bridging social and aesthetic partitions, and cultivating its ongoing collaborations and residencies in the Chicago region. They were also the Ensemble-in-Residence at the University of Chicago’s Music Department from 2012–2020. Since their inception, they have been known for creating seamless connections across centuries, drawing in the listener with charismatic deliveries, interactive concert formats, an up-close atmosphere, and bold, inquisitive programming.
We’ll have lots of great pieces that feature the Spektral Quartet in this playlist. Connect with Classical Music Indy’s New Classical channel for this and more.
