Description

NEXTET New Music Series
  • Jennifer Bellor, artistic director

Award winning composer Richard Danielpour has established himself as one of the most gifted and sought-after composers of his generation. His music has attracted an international and illustrious array of champions, and, as a devoted mentor and educator, he has also had a significant impact on the younger generation of composers. He is Professor of Music at the Herb Alpert School of Music at UCLA, and is also a member of the faculty of the Curtis Institute of Music where he has taught since 1997.

The Beo String Quartet exists as a 21st century quartet by directing the future of the art through original music and projects; engaging listeners through entertainment and thoughtful demonstration; performing live, in any venue, the masterpieces of the string quartet literature; collaborating with living composers to showcase the music of our time; and participating in our modern global culture through a strong social media presence. Now in its fourth season, Beo has performed over 80 concert works in the US and Europe--including over 30 world premieres--and produced dozens of recordings.
