Harlem Quartet with John Patitucci

Harlem String Quartet with Bassist John Patitucci

Harlem Quartet Artist Series

Saturday, February 6, 2021
Livestreamed from Edman Chapel, 7:30 pm

This exciting collaboration is best described by Jason Olaine of Jazz at Lincoln Center: 

The pairing of Harlem Quartet with bassist/composer/arranger John Patitucci was pure genius, yielding sumptuous musical results. Harlem Quartet are truly spellbinding – they have incredible technique, uncanny pitch and flawlessly phrase as a cohesive unit –  more like an organism.  And Mr. Patitucci has been at the top of his game for decades… On this particular evening the music John wrote and arranged was well-suited for this Jazz meets Classical collaboration --  it clearly was difficult and challenging for the musicians, but musically satisfying to the ear – melodic, nuanced, dynamic, surprising, at times energetic and others plaintive. This would be a concert I would return to again and again. Bravo!  

The Harlem Quartet is 'bringing a new attitude to classical music, one that is fresh, bracing and intelligent.' — The Cincinnati Enquirer
