Enso String Quartet with Clive Greensmith, Cello
Sunday, April 3, 2016 at 3:30 pm
The name Enso is derived from the Japanese Zen painting of the circle, which represents many things: perfection and imperfection, the moment of chaos that is creation, the emptiness of the void, the endless circle of life, and the fullness of the spirit. The members of the Enso String Quartet all were drawn to the string quartet repertoire because of its richness and diversity, and founded the Quartet at Yale University in 1999. The Charleston Daily Mail described a recent concert as “Expertly performed and musically as satisfying as any that I have heard. There is sweet music, and its name is Enso.”
Guest artist Clive Greensmith has been principal cellist of London’s Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and a member of the Tokyo String Quartet.
