Since its founding in 1965, the Ciompi Quartet has been Duke University’s resident string quartet. All its members are professors at Duke, where they teach instrumental lessons, coordinate and coach chamber music, and perform across campus in concert halls, libraries, dormitories and classrooms. Ciompi’s career spans five continents and includes many hundreds of concerts.
The ensemble’s 2021/22 residency will include a Fall performance on November 6 and two additional concerts to be announced with the Spring season. Throughout the year, they will also read and record new works by composers in the PhD composition program alongside visiting ensemble Imani Winds.
