The Harlem Quartet is very much a quartet of the 21st century. They are at home with many genres of music while not drifting far at all from the essential core string quartet repertoire. Standing backstage before their concert here at the Shalin Liu Performance Center, I heard the players warming up on excerpts from Beethoven Op. 59 No. 1. Then, they went on stage with a program of jazz that included new compositions by Aldo Lopez-Gavilan. Here at the Shalin Liu Performance Center, they have provided us with many fantastic musical moments and have proven themselves able and enthusiastic when visiting our schools as part of our outreach activities. Their artistry and energy fills any concert hall!
