Seattle-based Skyros Quartet returns to the Nordic Chamber Music 2023 stage with a concert exploring the vast Finnish repertoire for string quartet. This music is as expansive as the Finnish landscape and the quartet will guide you on an expedition through time and across distances from folk-inspired to romantic to contemporary compositions featuring composers known and unknown.

The Skyros Quartet
Sarah Pizzichemi & Brandon Vance, violin
Justin Kurys, viola
Willie Braun, cello

On the program:
Catacombs by Carita Holmstrøm
Three Finnish Folk Melodies arr. Esko Järvelä
String Quartet Op. 56, “Voces Intimae” by Jean Sibelius

Skyros Quartet: Sarah Pizzichemi & Brandon Vance, violins, Justin Kurys, viola, & Willie Braun, cello
