the long version

The young talents of the Dior String Quartet will kick off our Ghosts of Gotham mini-series, in partnership with Concert Artists Guild. While we at DoC spend most of our time lurking underground, it’s worth remembering that there’s a dynamic, multicultural city bustling above us. This award-winning quartet has curated a program highlighting how American musical origins have influenced composers across cultures and centuries, including Czech-born composer reflecting on his time in the U.S., Korean-born composer Soo Yeon Lyuh channeling the sounds of her homeland through Western instruments, and NYC local Robert Paterson creating sonic depictions of everyday life in New York.

The short version

Come hear the Dior Quartet as they trace the musical threads of New York, reverberating through time in this great melting pot of ours.

The Artists

The Performers

Hailing from Israel, Korea and Canada, Saint Lucia, and the United States, the globally informed Dior Quartet is the Quartet-in-Residence at the Glenn Gould School at the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto. Silver Prize-winners of the 2021 Chesapeake Chamber Music Competition and Bronze Medalists at the 2019 Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition, the Quartet formed in 2018 at the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University where the Ensemble was mentored by the estimable Pacifica Quartet. Since its formation, the Dior has also worked with members of the Alban Berg, St. Lawrence, Danish, Artemis, Ébene, and Belcea Quartets. The repertoire and projects that the Quartet pursues intersect with the members’ multicultural backgrounds and values as they seek to explore the immigrant experience through art. The Quartet takes its name from the French word d’or, which means “golden.”
