From Frank Salomon Associates:
SYBARITE5 is joining Frank Salomon Associates’ roster as of June 1, 2014.
‘Their rock star status…is well deserved. Their classically honed technique mixed with grit and all out passionate attack transfixes the audience…’ Sarasota Herald Tribune
Comprised of Sami Merdinian and Sarah Whitney, violins; Angela Pickett, viola; Laura Metcalf, cello; and Louis Levitt, bass, this groundbreaking quintet redefines audiences’ perception of chamber music across the country with captivating performances of new commissions, Radiohead, Piazzolla and classical music. That’s why major presenters like Washington Performing Arts have re-engaged them and The Washington Post raved,
‘What was all that impassioned playing, those hard-driving rhythms, the
blissed-out faces of the mostly young audience? And what about the cheering –
the actual cheering – that filled the Sixth and I Historic Synagogue when the
group returned onstage after intermission? Is this what modern music has
come to? Genuine, spontaneous…excitement? We can only hope.’
SYBARITE5 is the first string quintet ever selected as a winner of the Concert Artists Guild International Competition in its 60-year history. They captivate audiences with their fresh approach to programming and with virtuosity and enthusiasm in their performance.
We’ve always prided ourselves on helping to introduce and guide artists who have something original and compelling to say, and are delighted to have SYBARITE5 join our family. They are a rare group whose voice speaks to all audiences. They’ll be on our roster as of June 1, 2014 (for 2015/16 engagements and beyond).
