Inferno String Quartet takes second place at national competition
Quartet members from The High School for the Performing and Visual Arts in Montrose recently burnt it up in the national 2011 Saint Paul String Quartet Competition.
The school's Inferno String Quartet earned silver medals for the “smooth” rendition of its Ravel quartet movement, as well as its polished last movement of Beethoven Op. 95, according to the press release.
Juries for the National High School String Quartet Competition, which took place in Sundin Music Hall at Minnesota’s Hamline University, included the Pacifica String Quartet and Parker String Quartet. Judges for the competition included John McGrosso of the Arianna String Quartet, Susan Bates of the New Age String Quartet and Laura Thielke of the Artaria Quartet of Boston.
High School quartets competing in this annual event are judged by tone quality, intonation, ensemble and balance, and musical ideas.
