The concert would have graced Lincoln Center; for it to take place at the Dunaway Center in Ogunquit, Friday night was little short of phenomenal.

The world-renowned Cassatt String Quartet, with pianist Adrienne Kim, played four major contemporary works, including a world premier.  Each one was introduced by the composer.

The compositions varied tremendously in style, but each was given a thoughtful, lively and technically flawless performance. No composer could have asked for more.
