The Bergamot Quartet is a string quartet whose mission is to bring to life the works of living composers. We collaborate frequently with other musicians and perform often, having been featured many times on Baltimore's Evolution Series; we have also been featured on the Union Square Chamber Music Society series and the In the Stacks series at the George Peabody Library among others. We were fellows at the Banff Evolution of the String Quartet program in summer of 2018 and are filling 2019 with lots of music we're thrilled about, most of it brand-new, some of it older, all creatively programmed in a variety of spaces.
BEHIND THE CURTAIN album now out on Bandcamp! Give it a listen HERE.
THE WITCHES are myself on violin/viola and vocals and Louna Dekker-Vargas on flutes and vocals. We are an experimental duo that transcends the limitations of two treble instruments through a blend of free improvisation, arrangements of everything from Telemann to Stockhausen to Paul Motian, and works we commission from living composers. Our performances might be unified by a theme, such as our recent set of commissions called Behind the Curtain exploring womens' roles as patrons of the arts, or improvised dialogue with and reactions to a sonic or physical environment.
