About the Artists

Argus Quartet and Blanca Ugelli, piano

Clara Kim, violin – Giancarlo Latta, violin – Maren Rothfritz, viola – Mariel Roberts, cello

Praised for playing with supreme melodic control and total authority and decided dramatic impact (Calgary Herald), the Argus Quartet has quickly emerged as one of today’s most dynamic and versatile ensembles. They are …at the forefront of the new generation of string quartet groups, and they are finding fresh, thrillingly expressive possibilities and adding bold new colors to a canvas that has their clear signature on it. (David Harrington, Founding Violinist of the Kronos Quartet). Brilliant Argentine pianist Blanca Ugelli performs with elegance, grace, and intensity. Noted for the poetry of her playing (Douglas Humpherys, pianist and master educator), she has performed live, on radio and television, in Buenos Aires, Muncie, Boston and New York.

These acclaimed artists will combine their talents and passion to present a beautiful afternoon of music for us. The program includes a gorgeous quartet by French composer Tailleferre, the beautiful Modes by Black composer Rudd Moore and the thrilling piano quintet by Schumann. This is a concert you and your family will not want to miss!
