Armida Quartet

Quartets and Quintets
Three outstanding Berlin based ensembles bring their artistry to the Morgan stage, with select works from the renowned music collection. 

Armida Quartet
In their New York debut, the Armida Quartet performs a part of their "Mozart Exploded" series, offering a deeper understanding of Mozart by juxtaposing all twenty-six of Mozart’s string quartets alongside new works. The Armida re-envisions Mozart as a young, radical, and modern composer—an artist who creates musical fireworks. Readings of Mozart’s letters* in between works by Andrei Drooz will complement the performance.
