Alexander Fiterstein, Clarinet
Curtis Macomber , Violin
Alexis Pia Gerlach, Cello
Michael Boriskin, Piano

Music from Copland House is the acclaimed resident ensemble at Aaron Copland’s National Historic Landmark home in New York, now restored as a unique creative center for American music. Since its trium¬phant New York debut as the Opening Night of Merkin Hall’s 1999-2000 season, Music from Copland House has come to occupy a special place on the U.S. musical scene as perhaps this country’s only wide-ranging American repertory ensemble. Provocatively uniting past and present, American and non-American, it journeys across 150 years of our nation’s rich musical legacy, reaching back deep into the 19th century and forward to just-completed compositions. The ensemble has been engaged by some of America’s foremost concert presenters, including Carnegie Hall, the Library of Congress, Monday Evening Concerts in Los Angeles, Columbia University’s Miller Theatre, and the Caramoor International Music Festival.

Diderot String Quartet – named after the eighteenth-century French philosopher and Boccherini enthusiast Denis Diderot—brings a fresh approach to works of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Diderot came together in 2012 after having first met at Oberlin Conservatory and The Juilliard School. The four musicians share a background in historical performance and a passion for the string quartet genre, finding the thrill of exploring the quartet repertoire on period instruments to be irresistible. Diderot String Quartet has served as guest faculty for Oberlin’s Baroque Performance Institute, and been in residence at Aldeburgh Music in the U.K. They have performed at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Toledo Museum of Art and the Carmel Bach Festival.
