Pianist Marc-André Hamelin and the Pacifica Quartet bring the 2013-2014 Fortas Chamber Music Concerts to a grand close. Hamelin, who performs his own Variations on a Theme of Paganini, has been praised for performances that are "never flamboyant or showy: his playing is all about the music" (BBC Music Magazine). 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 pianist Marc-André Hamelin in performances of experimental composer Leo Ornstein's rhythmically engaging Piano Quintet and the Dvorák Piano Quintet.
