We open the 2019 year with the Ciompi Quartet. The Ciompi Quartet of Duke University has delighted audiences and impressed critics around the world. All its members are professors at Duke, where they teach instrumental lessons, coordinate and coach chamber music, and perform across campus. In a career that spans five continents and includes many hundreds of concerts, the Ciompi Quartet has developed a reputation for performances of real intelligence and musical sophistication, with a warm, unified sound that allows each player’s individual voice to emerge.
The Ciompi Quartet with Clarinetist Allen Ware:
Allan Ware studied at Davidson College, the University of North Carolina, and Peabody Conservatory of Music in Baltimore. In 1980 he was awarded a Fulbright Grant for two years to study clarinet with Prof. Jost Michaels in Germany, during which time he began performing exclusively as a soloist and chamber musician, and has performed hundreds of recitals and solo appearances on the stages of leading European chamber music series.
