Parker Quartet at Banff Centre and Bard Festival
Renowned for its dynamic interpretations and polished, expansive colors, the Parker Quartet has rapidly distinguished itself as one of the preeminent ensembles of its generation, dedicated purely to the sound and depth of their music. Their luminous sound and exceptional musicianship set them apart, along with their fearless approach to repertoire. This summer, the Parker completed its second summer in residence at the Banff Centre in Canada coaching top young ensembles and explored Erich Korngold works for ensemble at the Bard Festival. The two works – his sextet and piano quintet – are orchestral and even cinematic in scope, perfect for the Parker.
