Graffe String Quartet &
Michiko Otaki, piano

Pre-concert Talk 2:00 PM

"Graffe String Quartet makes sublime music," heralds the Charleston Daily Mail’s headline. "The Graffe and Otaki played elastically and energetically, while leaving no filigree unturned," echoes The Charleston Gazette. Among the finest Czech quartets of its generation, the Graffe has toured Europe and the United States, winning acclaim for its youthful freshness and interpretative maturity. The musicians reunite with Clayton State University faculty pianist Michiko Otaki for a lively quintet by the prolific Czech-born composer, Bohuslav Martinu.


“The Graffe Quartet dazzled with perfect interplay – it seems as though its members were breathing as one – and impeccable intonation. . . .The young musicians played with great élan and enthusiasm.”
