Main Performance

7:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 24, 2012
Schwab Auditorium

The Penn State program highlights the quartet’s signature mix of classics and far-ranging explorations. Hear Georges Bizet’s Carmen Suite, Manuel de Falla’s El Amor Brujo, jazz gems by Miles Davis and John Coltrane, Spanish Renaissance music from the time of Miguel de Cervantes, works inspired by African instruments, and more. “The world’s hottest classical ensemble or its tightest pop band? However it helps you to think about the LAGQ,” writes a Los Angeles Times critic, “keep the emphasis on superlatives for its unrivaled joy, technical élan, and questing spirits.”
