More About the Quartet

The Dalí Quartet brings its signature mix of Latin American, Classical and Romantic repertoire to stages and audiences of all kinds. The quartet’s passionate energy is poured into everything they do, generating critical and audience acclaim for their Classical Roots, Latin Soul. Its tours include appearances for distinguished chamber music and cultural center series in the U.S., Canada and South America. Recent engagements include concerts in New York and Philadelphia, on to Portland, Park City, San Jose, and from Tulsa to Toronto and beyond. The Dalí Quartet’s engaging style reaches across the footlights for an experience which “leaves the audience almost dancing in the aisles." (Peninsula Reviews)

 

In addition to works of the masters from Haydn to Brahms and Amaya to Piazzolla, the group's adventurous and entertaining programming includes new works for quartet with percussionist Orlando Cotto, and quintets both Latin and Classical with the renowned clarinetist Ricardo Morales, principal clarinetist of The Philadelphia Orchestra, and with acclaimed pianist Vanessa Perez.

 

The Dalí Quartet is devoted to audience development and to reaching communities of all kinds. The group’s Latin Fiesta Workshops and Family Concerts in both traditional and innovative settings move listeners – literally! The Dalí Quartet is sought after for master-classes and professional development workshops for students, (recently at Michigan State, the University of Wisconsin, and the University of Iowa) and opens musical vistas for younger kids with its week-long Any Given Child programs (over three seasons for the Tulsa Public School System). In addition, the quartet’s International Music Festival is an admired chamber music and orchestral program founded in 2004 which develops the performance skills of young musicians up through semi-professional level. The Dalí has held residencies at West Chester University and Lehigh University, and is an IRIS Orchestra Resident Ensemble.

 

The Dalí returns to the National Gallery of Art this season and also performs with clarinetist Ricardo Morales at the Pro Arte Musical series in Puerto Rico. A 2018-2019 tour is being planned with Van Cliburn Competition Gold Medalist Olga Kern.

 

Trained by world-renowned artists, members of the Dalí Quartet are from Venezuela, Puerto Rico and the US, and have studied at esteemed institutions such as the Cleveland Institute of Music, Yale University, Indiana University Bloomington and the Simón Bolivar Conservatory in Caracas, Venezuela. The Dalí Quartet is based in Philadelphia.

Classical Roots—Latin Soul
