Think you know what a string quartet sounds like? Quartet Davis might have you thinking again.
Founded at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music, Quartet Davis blends a classical string quartet sound with influences from jazz, bluegrass, R&B and folk music to create a truly unique musical experience. This creative, young quartet joined me last week in the Classical 101 studios for an intimate interview and performance.
During the live video from Classical 101’s Facebook page, we heard some music that isn't the standard stuff from classical string quartets, and we talked about how these musicians are turning the traditional on its head.
It's not your grandmother’s string quartet — it's Quartet Davis. We hope you have just as much fun watching as we did during the performance.
