The Calder Quartet takes its name from great American sculptor and mobile artist Alexander Calder, about whom French playwright Jean-Paul Sartre wrote, “His one aim is to create chords and cadences of unknown movements. His mobiles are at once lyrical inventions, technical, almost mathematical combinations, and the perceptible symbol of nature.” Emulating the work of its namesake, the quartet creates a sensation with elegant chamber music and a touch of the avant-garde.
