Dali Quartet announces Maurycy Banaszek, viola as temporary replacement for Adriana Lineres

With an artist’s grace and a Caribbean soul, the Dalí Quartet is today’s freshest voice in Classical and Latin-American music. Anchored in both Venezuela’s El Sistema and in American classical conservatory traditions, this exciting quartet combines the best of both worlds. The Dalí Quartet’s captivating performances of traditional string quartet and LatinAmerican repertoire create an extraordinary concert experience that takes listeners on an eclectic journey of rhythm and sound. In the spirit of famed Spanish artist Salvador Dalí, the Dalí Quartet embraces imagination and excellence as central to its art form.
