Boulder, Colorado based Altius Quartet recently joined the PARMA family earlier this year to work on two upcoming releases. The first is a crossover album featuring the group’s take on pop music through the ages. While the second album will be music written by Shostakovich, to express their passion about his music in the difficult time in which he lived.
The quartet will begin recording their first album this summer and has launched a Kickstarter campaign to help cover studio and recording fees. Below is a video they have created to express their situation, and why any donation is greatly appreciated:
The Altius Quartet consists of Andrew Giordano, Joshua Ulrich (violins), Andrew Krimm (viola), and Zachary Reaves (cello). They have a very active performance schedule and have won awards such as the University of Colorado-Boulder’s Ekstrand Prize, a CMA Classical Commissioning Grant, and have performed at the Melbourne International Chamber Music Competition in Australia.
The quartet has been hailed as “rich” and “captivating” by “I Care If You Listen,” and they are quickly garnering an international reputation and capturing the hearts of audiences everywhere.
