The Artemis String Quartet will play at Union College's Memorial Chapel on Sunday, Feb. 12, at 3 p.m. as part of the Union College Chamber Concert Series.

Artemis String Quartet

Musicians comprising the quartet are: Natalia Prischepenko and Heime Müller on violins; Volker Jacobsen, viola; and Eckart Runge on cello.

The quartet's second series' performance will include Mozart's No.22 in B flat, K. 589 “Second Prussian”; Bartok's No.4; and Schubert's No. 13 in a, D. 804.

The Artemis Quartet has taken center stage as the premiere string quartet in contemporary chamber music. Hailed by critics and music lovers the world over, their playing is described as “gorgeous, impeccable and seamless.”

This capital region concert is eagerly anticipated after circumstances surrounding tightened security measures and travel restrictions forced them to cancel their 13-city U.S. tour in 2002.

Tickets are $20 for the general public and $10 for students. Advance tickets are available at the College Facilities Building, call 388-6080; or at the door one hour before the performance. For further concert information, call 372-3651 or visit the Union College website at
