Performances by the Ciompi Quartet are known for their intelligence and musical sophistication, and for a unified sound that leaves room for the players' individual voices. With a rare maturity and insight born of it's considerable experience on the concert stage, the Ciompi Quartet projects the heart and soul of the music, in a repertoire that ranges from well-known masterpieces to works by today's most communicative composers. Recent tours have taken the Ciompi Quartet as far afield as China, Germany, Italy, and Albania. In the US they have appeared from coast to coast. During the summer the Quartet has been engaged at Monadnock Music in New Hampshire, North Carolina's Eastern Music Festival, and the Highlands Chamber Music Festival. The Ciompi members excel as communicators and are a frequent choice for residencies, in settings that range from Dartmouth and St. Lawrence Universities, to inner city and rural schools.
