Acacia Quartet explores new frontiers by commissioning jazz pianist and composer, Joe Chindamo, to write his first string quartet. Chindamo, who is equally gifted as composer, arranger and improviser, is known to skate effortlessly between musical genres with integrity and inventiveness, creating a unique sound which eschews boundaries.
This exciting program will not only include the world premiere of Chindamo’s String Quartet but also interwoven with Osvaldo Golijov’s Tenebrae and Maurice Ravel’s timeless string quartet.
