Carpe Diem has earned critical acclaim with innovative programming, electrifying performances and a passion for audience engagement. The group’s musical passion has led them down the paths of gypsy, tango, folk, pop, rock, and jazz-inspired music, but the quartet is equally at home with the traditional string quartet repertoire. Their Boise performance will feature Mendelssohn’s posthumous “Quartet in F Minor,” new works by jazz pianist/arranger Bradley Sowash and Carpe Diem violist Korine Fugiwara, a Gypsy Czardas arranged from a work by Vitorrio Monti, and Astor Piazzolla’s miniature tone poem, “Autumn,” from “The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires.”
Carpe Diem will coach a string quartet master class from 10:30-11:30 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 5, in the Morrison Center Recital Hall. Two Boise State student quartets will perform. This educational event is free and open to the public.
