The Secret Quartet comprises four individual artists known for championing new music. Cornelius Dufallo, violin (ETHEL, Ne(x)tworks), Jennifer Choi, violin (ETHEL, Either/Or), Lev Zhurbin, viola (Ljova and the Kontraband), and Yves Dharamraj, cello (Ne(x)tworks, Ensemble ACJW) join forces in engaging performances of the contemporary repertoire. They will be celebrating the CD release of John King’s Free Palestine quartets on New World Records. Free Palestine is an ongoing set of pieces employing Arabic pitch and rhythmic modes which explore sonic, structural and temporal freedoms.
“Chance plays a significant role in how the pieces transpire, but there was a sense of firm intention, of dramatic momentum.” - The New York Times
