ODEONQUARTET is celebrating it's 10th season with a "BRIDGING THE CULTURAL GAP" tour to Moscow, Russia May 23 - June 1, 2010
For ten years, odeonquartet has been passionately dedicated to introducing rarely performed and previously unheard contemporary chamber music of the highest quality to the Pacific Northwest and audiences worldwide.
In the past year, they have presented many exciting US and Seattle premiers of such works as "Michael Music" and "Forellenquintet" - Pavel Karmanov (Moscow, Russia) , "Lamentations" - Tunde Jegede (London, England) - , Quintet for Glass & Strings - Gary Eister and Mozart's final chamber work, K. 617 "Concertantequintet" for glass and string quartet.
Known for introducing dynamic contemporary composers to audiences of the Northwest and worldwide, the ODEONQUARTET will turn their focus to new American and Russian music on their “Bridging the Cultural Gap” tour to Moscow, Russia this coming May, 2010.
This packed two-day music event will provide a crash course into the future of American and Russian music with performances and seminars by an impressive list of emerging and mid-career composers.
The odeonquartet will enable audiences to gain deeper knowledge of Russian & American cultures through the art of music.
Now in its 10th year, ODEONQUARTET, the Seattle-based string quartet, will be traveling to Moscow in May, 2010 to bring its dynamic new music to the audiences of Moscow Conservatory and Dom Musiki (House of Music) in Moscow, Russia.
In a bridging of musical cultures, this American quartet will be performing Moscow composer Pavel Karmanov’s “Forellenquintet” for quartet and piano, set to a surreal video sequence taking place in a fish factory, and American composer Philip Glass Quartet (No. 5), which will mark this as the Russian premiere of this great award winning composer’s work.
Out of the four musicians, three of them, are Seattle Symphony members.
