Quatuor Diotima at the Library of Congress

Quatuor Diotima is one of those rare ensembles that is able to combine an extraordinary commitment to new music with a passion for great works in the repertoire. Their programming often showcases new music alongside works both familiar and perhaps unfamiliar, providing a thoughtful context in which to appreciate the wonderful variety of literature for the string quartet. Quatuor Diotima’s performance features the world premiere of a new quartet by Rebecca Saunders, co-commissioned by the Library of Congress.
