The Amernet String Quartet, which has garnered honors and played around the world since its founding in 1991, will add a touch of local Fresno flavor to its program when it performs Saturday, Jan. 30, at Fresno State.
The quartet has recorded works by many of today’s leading composers including John Corigliano, Steven Gerber and Toshi Ichiyanagi. Its latest CD is titled “Dissenting Voices” on Focus Recordings.
The program includes Haydn’s “Kaiser” and Ravel’s Quartet. The quartet also will morph itself into a quintet for one piece, Goldmark’s String Quintet, with cellist and Fresno State professor Thomas Loewenheim joining the ensemble as guest artist.
Amernet has been ensemble-in-residence at Florida International University since 2004.
