The School of Music hosted a chamber music recital in Knowlton Hall for a string quartet on Sunday night. The Lantern spoke with three members of the Quartetto Grigio on the advantages and challenges of playing in a quartet, rather than a larger orchestra.

“There’s nothing like playing with great musicians and being able to create music collectively with other people,” said Caleb Herrmann, a third-year in music theory. The string quartet, made up of two violins, a viola, and a violoncello, played Franz Haydn’s “The Rider” as well as Felix Mendelssohn’s “Quartet in A minor.”
