About Colburn Chamber Music Society
Nowhere else in LA will one hear this magical combination of artists performing unique chamber repertoire in the intimate acoustics of Zipper Hall-- with guest artists ranging from fresh young trend-setters the Ebène Quartet (2009 Gramaphone’s Record of the Year) to living legend Menahem Pressler (back for his third year with the CCMS series); faculty artists like San Francisco Symphony Principal Percussionist Jack Van Geem and renowned pianist John Perry; and Colburn students who have garnered accolades and prizes from the Fischoff and Coleman chamber music competitions.
About Ebène Quartet
The Quatuor Ebène has studied extensively with the Ysaye Quartet in Paris as well as with the eminent Gábor Takács, Eberhard Feltz et György Kurtág. Since its dramatic 2004 triumph at the prestigious ARD international competition in Munich, where the quartet was also awarded five additional special prizes, the Ebènes have gone on to win the Forberg-Schneider Foundation’s Belmont Prize in 2005. It has since remained close to the foundation, which has very generously arranged to have the quartet outfitted with several unique Italian instruments, on loan to the quartet members from private owners.
