Notes & Reviews:

The Skyros Quartet - Sarah Pizzichemi and James Moat, violins; Justin Kurys, viola; and William Braun, cello - brings a bright and inventive style to their performances. They have concertized across North America and Asia, collaborating with artists from many disciplines and creatively engaging audiences. The ensemble is passionate about the future of music and performing works by living composers. Introspective Odyssey is a journey through three early 20th c. European cultures and sound worlds via the intimate genre of the string quartet with works of Britten, Turina and Sibelius.
