The Tiberius String Quartet from Romania will make its first American concert tour in late September/October.
Formed in 1994 at the Academy of Music in Cluj, the musicians have been coached and mentored by some of the most respected names in the world of chamber music, including Sándor Devich (Bartók Qt.), Norbert Brainin and Martin Lovett (Amadeus Qt.) and Jerry Horner (Fine Arts Qt.).
The Quartet is resident ensemble with the Targu Mures Philharmonic and performs thirty concerts each season there, and has performed throughout Europe, including at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam and the Tonhalle in Zurich, as well as in Japan. Each fall at their “Tiberius Week” International Chamber Music Festival in Romania they perform with guest artists from many of the world’s leading ensembles.
For their American debut tour the ensemble will perform works of Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms, Dvorák and Shostakovich. The tour culminates in Bloomington, Indiana where the Tiberius is featured in the Dubinsky Memorial Concert at Indiana University, playing Shostakovich’s Piano Quintet with Luba Edlina-Dubinsky, widow of Rostislav Dubinsky, former first violinist of the Borodin Quartet, who taught at Bloomington after leaving that quartet. Also featured at that concert is the eminent clarinetist James Campbell playing the Mozart Quintet with the Tiberius. (Please see below for the full list of tour cities with links to individual concerts.)
Members of the ensemble are violinists Tibor Molnár and Károly Lokodi, violist József Molnár, and cellist Elod Zágoni.
The tour has been arranged by Raymond Weiss Artist Management which has toured nearly 150 ensembles from abroad since its inception in the early 1970's, including chamber music groups, chamber orchestras, and full symphonic orchestras.
