The acclaimed French string quartet Quatuor Diotima, this year’s Don Michael Randel Ensemble-in-Residence at the University of Chicago, joins forces with the University Symphony Orchestra for its upcoming Winter Quarter concert. Known as ardent champions of contemporary music and artists who bring new insights to the standard quartet canon, Quatuor Diotima will collaborate with the USO on Edward Elgar’s richly textured Introduction and Allegro for String Quartet and Orchestra, Op. 47. To frame that distinctive musical offering, the USO performs Antonín Dvořák’s exquisite Serenade for Strings, Op. 22, and the evocative Four Sea Interludes from Benjamin Britten’s masterful opera Peter Grimes.
