Praised for their “beautifully nuanced playing” (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel), Philomusica’s members – violinists Jeanyi Kim, and Sascha Mandl, violist Nathan Hackett, and cellist Adrien Zitoun have been delighting audiences in southeastern Wisconsin since their founding in 2008. Their program will include works by J.S. Bach and Robert Schumann.
ABOUT THE ORCHESTRA
Recognized for their compelling programing, the versatile Philomusica Quartet, will perform two programs at the gorgeous Wisconsin Conservatory of Music. Philomusica Quartet is the quartet-in-residence at the Wisconsin Lutheran College, Wisconsin. True to their name, (philo – love of + musica – music), the quartet continues to delight their growing audience with jewels of the string quartet repertoire and win the praise from critics. Violinists Jeanyi Kim and Alexander Mandl, violist Nathan Hackett and cellist Adrien Zitoun formed the Philomusica Quartet in 2008 in order to create an outlet for sharing and expressing their love of chamber music. Resident at the Wisconsin Lutheran College, the Philomusicians bring to the group a wealth of experience as versatile performers and educators.
“These musicians do not merely play; they decide what sound is right for what music.” Tom Strini Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, 2009
