Archive Project 1935: Kolisch String Quartet
Daniel Ching, violin
William Fedkenheuer, violin
John Largess, viola
Joshua Gindele, cello
The Kolisch Quartet was founded in Vienna but moved to America in 1939. They knew Schoenberg, Berg, Webern and Bartók personally, premiering many of their works. They specialized in a “modern” presentation of the Beethoven quartets as one of the first quartets to play Beethoven’s metronome markings and to perform the Grosse Fuge in concert. The Miró will recreate the Kolisch Quartet's April 8, 1935 concert at the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C.
