Since its inception in 1985, the Turtle Island Quartet has created bold, new trends in chamber music for strings. Winner of the 2006 and 2008 Grammy Awards for Best Classical Crossover category, Turtle Island fuses the classical quartet esthetic with contemporary American musical styles. Cellist Yo-Yo Ma has proclaimed the quartet to be “a unified voice that truly breaks new ground – authentic and passionate – a reflection of some of the most creative music-making today.” The program will feature selections from Turtle Island founding composer/violinist David Balakrishnan’s large scale work Tree of Life, integrating jazz, western classical, American folk, Latin American, and Indian classical music.
