The Lark Quartet
A Farewell Celebration
The Lark Quartet brings its stellar 34 year career to a close with this celebratory album. On it, the Lark Quartet offers premiere recordings of works by John Harbison, Kenji Bunch, Anna Weesner and Andrew Waggoner, all composed for this occasion. Assisting Lark Quartet are Yousif Sheronick, percussion (Bunch), Romie de Guise-Langlois, clarinet (Weesner) and the Lark's four founding members (Waggoner). The Lark has performed in many of the world's great cultural centers including Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, The Library of Congress, London's Wigmore Hall, LOpéra de la Bastille in Paris, and appeared at festivals including Lockenhaus, Schleswig-Holstein, Mostly Mozart, Istanbul Festival, Wolftrap and the Beethoven Festival in Moscow. The Lark is known for performances of "grace, proportion and burnished brilliance" (The Washington Post), and for offering audiences programs featuring the great standard quartet repertoire alongside recent music from the Americas, Africa, Asia, and the Middle East.
