The Eybler Quartet performed for us a couple of years ago at one of our outreach events. We are excited to have them on our main stage this season. Formed in 2004, the quartet currently includes Aisslinn Nosky (violin), Julia Wedman (violin), Patrick G. Jordan (viola), and Margaret Gay (cello).
Their primary focus is on works of the first century of the string quartet and they like to bring attention to lesser known early composers. They are named for one such composer – Joseph Leopold Edler von Eybler. Eybler was a contemporary of Mozart.
The quartet perform period music on instruments appropriate to the time period. Nosky, Wedman, and Jordan are all part of Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra.
