Music at Evergreen Concert Series Wraps With Amedeo Modigliani Quartet

By Heather Egan Stalfort
University Libraries and Museums

The 56th season of Evergreen Museum & Library's Music at Evergreen concert series concludes with the Amedeo Modigliani Quartet at 3 p.m. on Saturday, March 7. Formed in 2003 at the Paris Conservatory, this young string ensemble has stunned audiences around the world playing with what The New York Times described as "Gallic cool."

The program includes Franz Josef Haydn's Quartet in B major, Op. 76., No. 4 (Sunrise); Felix Mendelssohn's Quartet in A minor, Op. 13; and Maurice Ravel's Quartet in F major.

A gallery talk focusing on two paintings by Amedeo Modigliani (1884-1920) in the Evergreen Museum & Library collection will be offered at 2 p.m. The concert is followed by a meet-the-artists reception.

Praised by France's Le Progres for its "stunning technical expertise, outstanding ensemble and a particularly accomplished musical identity," the Amedeo Modigliani Quartet won the 2006 Young Concert Artists International Auditions in New York and the 2005 Young Concert Artists European Auditions in Paris.

The performance will be held in Evergreen's Bakst Theatre. Tickets, which are $20, $15 for members and $10 for students with valid ID, include admission to the museum and gallery talk. Seating is limited; advance tickets are available at or by calling 410-516-0341 (handling charges apply). Cash or check only at the door. Complete concert information is available online at
