Washington Performing Arts presents:
Argus Quartet
Valley of Wonderment

From a residency at Juilliard to collaborations with the Kronos Quartet, Juilliard String Quartet, and JACK Quartet, the Argus Quartet is at the forefront of a generation of chamber ensembles that bring the same fresh curiosity to traditional repertoire as they do works by living composers. This program juxtaposes selections from J.S. Bach’s The Art of Fugue with Garth Knox’s Satellites and works by contemporary master Christopher Theofanidis and others.

“The Argus Quartet is finding fresh, thrillingly expressive possibilities and adding bold new colors to a canvas that has their clear signature on it.” (David Harrington, Kronos Quartet)
