Music Monday - Borromeo String Quartet

Classical music meets Mac.  Makes my heart go pitter-patter.

These guys are amazing!  If you ever have a chance to see them live, please do so--not only are they fabulous players, but they often give lecture-concerts.  If you live in the Boston area you should get plenty of opportunities, but in the next several months they will be in Pennsylvania, Virginia, New York, Arizona, and Colorado, as well.  Website of the Borromeo String Quartet here.  Calendar here.  First violinist Nicholas Kitchen's YouTube channel here (and check out this video for more Beethoven and for the screenshots behind the quartet).  There was also a recent article about the quartet in the NYT titled "Bytes and Beethoven."

My thanks to Tabatha Yeatts (The Opposite of Indifference) for inspiring this post.

Yes, we've seen them two or three times and they are absolutely fantastic. At the Kalliroscope Gallery, I actually chatted with Nicholas Kitchen a little bit, which was a thrill.

Thanks for the links!
