The Alma Quartet
Members of the Alma Quartet perform Joseph Haydn's Quartet in B-Flat Major, op. 76, no. 4 Sunrise and Ludwig van Beethoven's String Quartet in C Major, op. 59, no. 3.
Formed at the Colburn School in the spring of 2013, the Alma Quartet has performed Brahms's G Major Sextet with noted past Tokyo Quartet members and current Colburn Conservatory faculty Martin Beaver (viola) and Clive Greensmith (cello) as part of the Colburn Chamber Music Series. The Alma Quartet has worked intensively at the Colburn School with the famed Quatuor Ebène and in summer 2014 at the Norfolk Chamber Music Festival with members of the Tokyo, Emerson, Brentano, and Artis Quartets. Along with Clive Greensmith and Martin Beaver, their principal teacher at the Colburn Conservatory includes renowned first violin Arnold Steinhardt of the now-legendary Guarneri Quartet.
Sundays Live is made possible in part by The Ralph M. Parsons Foundation, the Colburn Foundation, Sarah Coode Mandell and Peter Mandell, and the Pasadena
Showcase House for the Arts.
