Hawthorne String Quartet to Perform Wednesday

(10-25-99) - The Hawthorne String Quartet -- an internationally acclaimed, locally-based ensemble -- will give its debut campus performance as Boston College's string quartet-in-residence on Wednesday, Oct. 27 at 8 p.m.

The quartet will perform a program of works by Haydn and Beethoven. The concert marks the Hawthorne String Quartet's first performance on campus since it was named the University's string quartet-in-residence late last year.

Formed in 1986, the Hawthorne String Quartet includes Boston Symphony Orchestra violinists Ronan Lefkowitz and Haldan Martinson, BSO violist Mark Ludwig, and BSO cellist Sato Knudsen. The quartet has performed extensively in Europe, South America, Japan and the United States, including major festivals such as Tanglewood, Ravinia, and Aspen. In addition, the quartet has made appearances with the Boston Symphony Orchestra and the Deutsch Kammerphilharmonie.

The concert will be held in Gasson 100. Admission is free and open to the public.
