Members of The Philadelphia Orchestra and graduates of The Curtis Institute of Music, Quartet Iris has performed concerts in some of New York's finest venues since 2007. Named after the Greek goddess of the rainbow, the Quartet brings to its performances a colorful blend of four diverse personalities and backgrounds. For their concert at the PAC Center, they will share the spirited final string quartet by Romantic master Johannes Brahms along with a string quintet by Luigi Boccherini, a cellist and pioneer of this form who composed over a hundred such works.

JOHANNES BRAHMS: String Quartet No. 3 in B-flat Major, Op. 67

Its fresh approach has been sought out by distinguished series worldwide, and the quartet is especially celebrated for their adventurous and entertaining programming, including new works for quartet with percussionist Orlando Cotto, and quintets both Latin and Classical with the renowned clarinetist Ricardo Morales of The Philadelphia Orchestra, and with acclaimed pianist Vanessa Perez. The Dalí Quartet has an ongoing collaboration with the Van Cliburn Competition gold-medal winning pianist Olga Kern, with whom they have toured from coast to coast and recorded the piano quintets of Brahms and Shostakovich.
