Now celebrating its 70th anniversary season, Caramoor presents outstanding chamber music of all varieties this summer. On July 17, the Calidore String Quartet premieres a new Caramoor commission from award-winning composer and soundscape ecologist Patrick Harlin. As the 2014-15 Ernst Stiefel Quartet-in-Residence, the Calidore String Quartet is the 15th incumbent of the yearlong residency, which sees the group give regular performances and take part in Caramoor’s Student Strings educational outreach program. Since forming in 2010 at the Colburn Conservatory of Music, the Calidore has graced such prestigious international festivals as Verbier and Ravinia, and been featured as “Young Artist-in-Residence” on American Public Media’s national “Performance Today” program. Arnold Steinhardt, former leader of the venerated Guarneri String Quartet, remarks: “[The Calidores] are individually terrific players; they’re hard working – and they have a personality when they play. They have a musical point of view. What more could you ask?”

Each year, Caramoor commissions a new work for the resident group; this season the Calidore gives the world premiere of a new composition by Patrick Harlin (b.1984). The recipient of a 2013 Charles Ives Scholarship from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, Harlin is a young composer with a passion for ecology, whose work explores the intersection between sound and the natural world. Drawing inspiration from River of Doubt, the bestselling portrait of Theodore Roosevelt’s harrowing Amazon expedition, Harlin’s new quartet will be bookended by two classics of the chamber repertory: Mozart’s Divertimento in F and Mendelssohn’s elegiac Sixth String Quartet.
