Fiato Quartet

New Strings is a concert dedicated to the exploration of the string quartet in all its facets. Economical but lush, traditional but often avant-garde, the string quartet is unique among ensembles in its ability to embody a composer's vision in distilled form. For this reason, the string quartet has historically been a proving-ground for composers eager to voice their ideas. In New Strings, the members of the Los Angeles Composers Collective take on this challenge with the help of the young and brilliant Fiato Quartet, proving once again that the string quartet can be fresh, relevant, and unexpected.
