  • Overview
    Drawing from thirty-five years of performances and recordings, An Evening with Turtle Island Quartet includes a wide range of original music written and performed by artistic director, resident composer and violinist David Balakrishnan with violinist Gabriel Terracciano, violist Benjamin von Gutzeit and cellist Malcolm Parson. The program will include Balakrishnan’s GRAMMY®-nominated “Confetti Man” and his recent composition “The Second Wave,” with occasional additions of the latest works by Terence Blanchard, Edgar Meyer, Wayne Shorter and others. This latest program is the first of many that will celebrate this unique quartet and the brain child of Balakrishnan, focusing on both music written for the quartet and highlighting music written in the last decade by great pioneers in jazz & American roots music.
