"[The Pacifica performs] with remarkable unanimity of vibrato, attack and volume."
--The New York Times
with Anthony McGill, clarinet
Fresh and daring, the Pacifica Quartet performs strikingly personal interpretations of classical and contemporary composers with "remarkable unanimity of vibrato, attack, and volume" (The New York Times). This inventive group makes its Fortas debut with Shostakovich's String Quartet No. 7 and is joined by clarinetist Anthony McGill, who was just named principal clarinet of the New York Philharmonic, in performances of clarinet quintets by Mozart and Brahms.
