Borromeo String Quartet

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jump to: navigation, search

The Borromeo String Quartet is an American string quartet in residence at the New England Conservatory of Music that has performed throughout North and South America, Europe and Asia at numerous festivals and on many distinguished chamber music series. The ensemble was formed in 1989 by violinists Nicholas Kitchen and Ruggero Allifranchini, violist EnSik Choi, and cellist Yeesun Kim; who were then all young musicians at the Curtis Institute of Music. Kitchen and Kim are husband and wife. Violist Hsin-Yun Huang joined the ensemble in 1994 after Choi left to pursue other opportunities.[1] Allifranchini and Huang left the ensemble in 2000 to be replaced by violinist William Fedkenheuer. and violist Mai Motobuchi.[2] In 2006 Fedkenheuer left to pursue other opportunities (is now a member of the Fry Street Quartet). and was replaced by violinist Kristopher Tong.

In 1990 the quartet won first prize at the International String Quartet Competition in Evian, France and in 1991 they won the Young Concert Artists International Auditions. As a result of winning the latter competition they got to perform in concert at the Kennedy Center and the 92nd Street Y.[3] In September 1998 the Quartet was named as recipient of Chamber Music America's prestigious Cleveland Quartet Award. Richard Dyer of The Boston Globe wrote that the Borromeo Quartet "combines every 20th-century virtuoso ensemble virtue with an old-world sense of color, character, and style". In 1999 the Quartet was made the ensemble in residence for the National Public Radio program Performance Today.[4] Recently the quartet has taken to using laptop computers in place of paper sheet music to allow them to see the "full interplay of a complete score" rather than just individual parts.[5]

Lettris

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.

boggle

Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
