Tosca String Quartet
April 26 7:00 pm Alamo Drafthouse Ritz
Tosca String Quartet, Austin's premier classical crossover ensemble, performs it's annual concert of new commissions presented by Golden Hornet Project and its co-artistic directors Graham Reynolds and Peter Stopschinski. Last year's show won the "Best Chamber Music Concert" award from The Austin Critics Table. In addition to world premiers from Reynolds and Stopschinski, this year will feature new commissions from composers Will Taylor of Strings Attached, Sam Arnold of Opposite Day, and Christopher Cox. We will also present three world premieres from Vampire Weekend's Rostam Batmanglij, who will be in attendance to perform with Tosca.
