The members of Harlem Quartet hail from Cuba, Puerto Rico, Indiana and the American mid-West, but they call Harlem – with its spectacular diversity and rich artistic history -- home. They are dedicated to advancing diversity in classical music while engaging new audiences with varied repertoire. Cuban piano prodigy Aldo López-Gavilán, brother of Harlem Quartet’s Ilmar Gavilán, is known for his mastery of both classical piano repertoire and the Afro-Cuban jazz tradition. His performances with Harlem Quartet offer a dynamic mix of classical repertoire, jazz standards and López-Gavilán's own compositions. “bringing a new attitude to classical music, one that is fresh, bracing and intelligent” -- Cincinnati Enquirer on Harlem Quartet “Simply a genius, a star.” — Chucho Valdés on Aldo López-Gavilán Saturday, September 23, 2017; 8:00 PM
