"The Harlem Quartet is bringing a new attitude to classical music, one that is fresh, bracing, and intelligent."
Now in the fifth decade of an illustrious international career, pianist Misha Dichter performs worldwide in recitals and with the world's great orchestras in repertoire that spans the Russian Romantic school, the German classical style, and the great works of our time. Dichter has been praised by the New York Times for "a ravishing performance... Mr. Dichter's reading was that of a flesh-and-blood poet, gently inflected, keenly felt, and executed with breathtaking polish from start to finish."
The Harlem Quartet, praised for its "panache" by the New York Times, is "bringing a new attitude to classical music, one that is fresh, bracing and intelligent," says the Cincinnati Enquirer. Currently the resident ensemble in the New England Conservatory of Music's Professional String Quartet Program, Harlem Quartet was founded in 2006 by The Sphinx Organization.
Misha Dichter and the Harlem Quartet will bring two iconic piano quintets by Schumann and Shostakovich, as well as Chick Corea's Adventures of Hippocrates, a jazzy, Latin-inspired quartet for strings.
