VERDI QUARTET
More about the artists

The Verdi Quartet comprised of violinists Susanne Rabenschlag and Matthias Ellinger, violist Karin Wolf, and cellist Zoltán Paulich is widely considered as one of Germany’s leading chamber music ensembles praised for its “nobility and subtlety” (Augsburger Allgemeine, Germany) and “wistful and completely enthralling playing” (Allgäuer Zeitung, Germany). Quartet in Residence at the Music Conservatory in Mannheim since 2004, these four colleagues have performed to great acclaim throughout Europe, North America, Asia, and Africa. This recital is the culmination of the Verdi Quartet’s one-week residency at California State University, Fresno, during which the ensemble will present a series of master classes and lectures.
