Parker Quartet with Kikuei Ikeda

Chamber

The elegant young Parker Quartet is joined by distinguished violist and violinist Kikuei Ikeda, a member of the Tokyo Quartet for nearly 40 years. 

You can hear one of the world’s very finest Stradivari violas in this concert: the superb 1690 Tuscan-Medici, on loan from the Tuscan Corporation. In a special collaboration with the S & R Foundation, the artists offer this program twice, at the Library on December 18,  and at the Foundation’s beautiful concert hall at Evermay on December 19.

Curator Carol Lynn Ward-Bamford talks with Parker Quartet violist Jessica Bodner and luthier John Montgomery.
