Classical Pick of the Week: Quartet San Francisco
Well known for their masterful tango bowing and plucking skills, Quartet San Francisco will be making their Los Angeles entrada this Friday at Théâtre Raymond Kabbaz, a non-profit theatre run by Le Lycée Français de Los Angeles, a bilingual school that has seen actresses such as Jodie Foster, Claire Danes, Shannon Doherty and others pass through.
The school's Theatre, which has a regular season that begins this Friday, is dedicated to French and international cultures. No better a choice for Quartet San Francisco to begin the multicultural season as their recently released album, “Whirled Chamber Music,” features blues, funk, jazz, tango, and rock. Their previous album, the Tango-based “Látigo,” earned them two Grammy nominations earlier this year.
