AEOLUS QUARTET AND IEVA JOKUBAVICIUTE TICKETS
Praised by Strad Magazine for their "high-octane" performance, the Aeolus Quartet is among the finest young string quartets performing today. Violinists Nicholas Tavani and Rachel Shapiro, violist Gregory Luce, and cellist Alan Richardson, formed the Aeolus Quartet in 2008 at the Cleveland Institute of Music. Since its inception, the all-American quartet has been awarded prizes at nearly every major competition in the United States and has performed across the globe to great acclaim. The Quartet is named for the Greek god Aeolus, the keeper of the four winds, known for welcoming Odysseus and his crew with music during their journey back to Ithaca in Homer's Odyssey.
Known for her deep musical and emotional commitment to a wide range of repertoire, Lithuanian pianist Ieva Jokubaviciute performs regularly for audiences in the U.S. and Europe. Her ability to communicate the essential substance of a work has led critics to describe her as possessing “razor-sharp intelligence and wit” (The Washington Post) and as “elegant and engaging” (The Wall Street Journal). In 2006, she was honored as a recipient of a Borletti-Buitoni Trust Fellowship. A much sought after chamber musician and collaborator, Ieva's chamber music endeavors have brought her to major stages around the world such as Carnegie Hall's Stern Auditorium, London's Wigmore Hall, Washington DC's Kennedy Center, and on national tours with Musicians from Marlboro. Ieva has appeared as a guest artist in chamber music performances on National Public Radio's Performance Today, with New York Philharmonic musicians at Merkin Hall, and with Boston Symphony musicians at Tanglewood.
