Finnish string quartet Meta4 (Antti Tikkanen, violin; Minna Pensola, violin; Atte Kilpeläinen, viola; Tomas Djupsjöbacka, cello) will make their Houston debut. This award-winning quartet has earned a Record of the Year award from the Finnish Broadcasting Company as well as the Emma prize (the Finnish Grammy) for Classical Album of the Year.

In their Houston debut, Meta4 explores works from the sound worlds of the Arctic Circle, from the Inuit themes of American composer Amy Beach’s String Quartet, to works of their fellow Finns Kaija Saarhiaho and Jean Sibelius. Inspired by Norwegian hardanger-fiddle tunes and rhythms of the Indian diaspora, Italo-Indian composer Krishna Nagaraja’s Stringar inhabits a timeless dimension where the boundaries between “folk,” “early” and “contemporary” are blurred.
