Enso String Quartet – Interlochen Arts Festival – August 14, 2017


One of its generation’s most compelling string ensembles, the Grammy-nominated Enso String Quartet brings its mastery and music to Corson Auditorium. The quartet has been described by Strad magazine as “thrilling,” and praised by the Washington Post for its “glorious sonorities.” This gifted quartet has won top prizes at the Concert Artists Guild competition and the Banff International String Quartet Competition, and is, in the words of Classical Voice, “one of the eminent string quartets of our era.”

The Enso’s members are all drawn to the string quartet repertoire because of its richness and diversity, and the ensemble is committed to exploring the four corners of that repertoire. The Enso regularly performs the classics of the string quartet literature, but also champions lesser-known works that deserve to be heard, along with much contemporary music, including works the Enso has commissioned. The ensemble also performs its own transcriptions, including arrangements of 16th-Century Renaissance music. “The quartet’s ability to present music of three completely different idioms so persuasively puts it in the running for the mantle of Quartet of the Future”(Palm Beach ArtsPaper). World premieres this season include commissioned works by New Zealander Alex Taylor and Australian Brenton Broadstock, and in recent seasons they have premiered quartets written for them by Dame Gillian Whitehead, Kurt Stallmann and Paul Moravec. The Enso also gave the world premiere of Joan Tower’s Dumbarton Quintet, with the composer at the keyboard.

Marvel at the musicianship and music of two break-out Interlochen Alumni.

Named among Yahoo Music's "Top 10 Bands to Watch in 2017," The Accidentals’ return to their hometown of Traverse City, MI—and their alma mater of Interlochen—to play this not-to-be-missed performance at Corson Auditorium.
Multi-instrumentalists Sav Buist (IAA 12-13) and Katie Larson (IAC 05, 08-12/IAA 12-14), joined by drummer Michael Dause, have crafted a genre all their own.

Larson, a sophomore cellist, and Buist, a junior violinist left their public high school to participate in the first year of the Singer Songwriter program at IAA. During that time they recorded their second album, Bittersweet. Over 1500 live shows and a self produced EP later, they signed a recording contract with Sony Masterworks in 2017. They return to Interlochen with their debut major label album, Odyssey, on Jan 27th, 2018.

THE ALBUM:
“They display equal interest in the focused musical forms of indie rock and pop and the expansive potential of orchestral arrangements, jam band open-endedness and impressionistic singer-songwriter expression.”
NPR First Listen: The Accidentals, ‘Odyssey.

THE LIVE SHOW:
The Knockturnal: Concert Review - The Accidentals At Mercury Lounge. “The first thing I noticed, other than the door-to-stage packed room, was the charisma of the band. It’s one thing to get a crowd energized and pumped, but to connect with them on an extremely real level is something that not many acts can pull off gracefully...with laugh inducing anecdotes before each song, Larson and Buist created a strong atmosphere and connection with the crowd.”

Diandra Reviews it All: Concert Review - The Accidentals Are The Comic-Con of Musicians at Mercury Lounge. “The Accidentals are the type of talents that remind humanity it can be so much more than how it acts or behaves. They go beyond lyrics that zone in on love’s ups and downs to present life as the core source of your balanced instability. They are more than just musicians; they are family.”
