Aeolus Quartet performs in Rexburg

BYU-Idaho will be presenting The Aeolus Quartet Concert on Friday, Nov. 6 at 7:30 p.m. in the Ruth. H Barrus Concert Hall, located in the Eliza R. Snow Center for the Performing Arts.

The Aeolus Quartet group consists of four members including Nicholas Tavani, Rachel Shapiro, Gregory Luce and Alan Richardson.

They each play musical instruments. For this particular quartet, Nicholas Tavani, Rachel Shapiro and Gregory Luce will be playing the violin and Alan Richardson will be playing the cello, according to the Center Stage Web page.

“It sounds way fun,” said Whitney Workman, a freshman majoring in general studies. “I really like musical things, so I might go to it.”

Workman said she heard about it from a friend and wanted to check it out.

She said it sounds interesting because she likes string instruments and their distinct sounds. She said that type of music is beautiful.

“If I am in town, I will most definitely go see it,” said Courtney Caresia, a junior studying health science.

Caresia said she has gone to other similar quartets and liked it.

Caresia said because the instruments they will be playing sound really good together, the concert should be fun, exciting and worthwhile to attend.

A quartet is a group of four people getting together and singing or playing instruments together, according to the Merrion Webster Dictionary.

They studied at the Cleveland Institute of Music and formed their group in 2008, according to their website.

They were the Grand Prize winner of the 2011 Plowman Chamber Music competition and currently are the Graduate Resident String Quartet at the Juilliard School in New York City, according to the Center Stage Web page.

They will be playing, “The Dvorak Quartet in A-flat Major,” “The Schubert Quartet in D minor” and “Death and the Maiden,” according to the Center Stage Web page.
