About Quartetto Gelato:
Virtuosic showpieces, romantic tenor arias, pyrotechnical solos, blazing gypsy show pieces, multi-instrument mastery and a World Accordion Champion – this is Quartetto Gelato.
For 25 years, this dazzling ensemble has enchanted audiences and critics worldwide with their exotic blend of musical virtuosity, artistic passion and humor. Classical in training – eclectic by design – Quartetto Gelato not only thrills its audiences with its multi-instrument mastery, but also offers the bonus of a brilliant operatic tenor. Their performance repertoire spans the globe including classical masterworks, operatic arias, the sizzling energy of tangos, gypsy and folk songs. The group’s theatrical stage presence and relaxed humor establishes an intimate rapport with audiences worldwide.
Quartetto Gelato established themselves as dominant forces on the music scene early in their career by winning the coveted title of NPR Performance Today’s Debut Artist of the Year. The selection panel concluded that the quartet was “an amazing ensemble that achieves the nearly impossible: they play salon music with real style and classical music with real precision; Great chops and a commitment in all that they play.” In 2007, the group’s first DVD Quartetto Gelato: A Concert in Wine Country! was picked up by PBS throughout the U.S. for broadcast. Most recently, Quartetto Gelato won the honor of Best Classical Ensemble at Canada’s 2010 INDIE awards.
Reserved seating tickets ($45-$39) for Quartetto Gelato will go on sale to our Members on Monday, September 5, to our e-mail subscribers on Monday, Sept. 12, and to the public on Friday, September 23.
