The sterling Tesla Quartet has begun an excellent 2015, with upcoming concerts including a New York evening with composer/pianist Timo Andres for the innovative chamber music/dinner series, Tertullia, and in Chicago for the Dame Myra Hess Memorial Concerts, where they play works by Schubert, Mozart, and a Tesla commission by Matthew Browne, Great Danger, Keep Out

In March, Tesla returns to London’s Wigmore Hall (where they won Third Prize in Wigmore’s 2012 International String Quartet Competition) to perform a program of Schubert, Haydn and Mendelssohn.

And, although the New Year has just begun, Tesla has already wrapped a tour of Oregon, where they performed concert programs for Chamber Music Series, Sundays @3, and the Umpqua Symphony Association. They also presented outreach and educational events for the Southern Oregon University, the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, and the Douglas County Youth Orchestra.

“The Tesla players offered an impressive program of music reaching across centuries of compositional creativity. And they did so with a superb capacity to find the inner heart of everything they played, regardless of era, style or technical demand.”
— The International Review of Music, Jan. 11, 2015

If all of this piques your interest, don’t forget, you can hear Tesla this weekend at New York’s DiMenna Center in the Ariel Artists CMA Showcase.
