American String Quartet and Salman Rushdie

With a well-deserved reputation as one of the most adventurous and fearless string quartets performing today, the American String Quartet, which will celebrate its 45th anniversary in 2019, has spent decades honing the luxurious sound for which it is famous.

Distinguished Writer in Residence at New York University, Salman Rushdie has received numerous honors including the Whitbread Prize for Best Novel, the Writers’ Guild Award, the London International Writer’s Award, and the James Joyce Award.

In October, they will come together for a one-of-a-kind collaborative performance. American String Quartet will perform a work by film composer Paul Cantelon built around Salman Rushdie’s novel The Enchantress of Florence, with the author himself reading excerpts from the book between movements. The readings and music will reflect each other’s depth and power, leaving audiences with senses enhanced by both essential languages.
