Through the intimate voice of the string quartet, Diffusion explores a mosaic of folk cultures in their unbridled journey across the globe. The often revelatory and always sublime voices of Janacek, Szymanowski and Ravel reveal a kaleidoscopic snapshot of cultural migration at the turn of the century. As an ensemble of four nations, the Verona Quartet celebrates this moment in time and the spirit of cross-cultural connection that lays at the heart of their musical message. Acclaimed for its reputation as an “outstanding ensemble… cohesive yet full of temperament” (The New York Times), the Verona Quartet has spellbound audiences worldwide with its delicate craftsmanship, luminous sound, and dramatic poise. In recognition of their distinction, the Verona Quartet is the recipient of one of chamber music’s most distinguished honors, Chamber Music America’s Cleveland Quartet Award.
