      Brodsky Quartet

      The Brodsky Quartet performs music by composers who have a strong connection to the South, be it music of the Mediterranean or the rhythmic idioms of South America. From the Mediterranean we have Verdi’s String Quartet and Puccini’s Crisantemi. Turina’s La oración del torero was inspired by scenes at a Spanish bull-fighting arena. The South American flavor comes from Piazzolla.  Also, Paul Cassidy, the violist of the Brodsky Quartet, has arranged two of Paganini’s solo violin Caprices for string quartet.
