Curtis 20/21 Ensemble
Vera Quartet, Quartet in residence of the Curtis Institute of Music
Flexible in size and scope, the Curtis 20/21 Ensemble performs a wide range of music from the 20th and 21st centuries, including works by Curtis students, faculty, and alumni. The ensemble has appeared at major U.S. venues such as the Kennedy Center and Carnegie Hall, and has presented concert portraits of iconic composers in residence John Corigliano, George Crumb, Krzysztof Penderecki, and Steven Stucky, among others. Of the ensemble’s Joan Tower portrait program, the New York Times wrote, “Ms. Tower could hardly have hoped for more passionate performances.” Dr. David Ludwig is artistic director of the Curtis 20/21 Ensemble.
Generous support for the Curtis 20/21 Ensemble is provided by the Daniel W. Dietrich II Foundation.
