Recognized for their eclectic repertoire of music, The Annex Quartet — Stanislav Pronin, Catherine Cosbey (violins), Yunior Lopez (viola), and Peter Cosbey (cello) — continues to deliver dynamic performances that push the boundaries of classical music. Founded in 2008, the quartet was the only quartet in North America selected to work with the Kronos Quartet in resi- dence at Carnegie Hall following interna- tional auditions. The Annex Quartet’s Latino-Americana project covers popular and forgotten classics from Cuba, Mexico, Argentina, and Panama. Some of the works have been revived and transcribed for string quartet by famed composers and musicians like Osvaldo Golijov, Hilario Duran, Roberto Garcia Lopez, and up-and-coming Mexican-American composer Arturo Hernandez. This performance marks the debut of The Annex Quartet in Las Vegas, and the American debut of the Latino- Americana project.
Founded in 2008 and based out of Toronto, Canada, the quartet has been in high demand throughout Canada and abroad appearing in over 100 concerts including acclaimed performances at Zankel and Weill Recital Hall’s at Carnegie Hall, the Montreal Museum of Modern Art, and the Stratford Festival to name a few. Whether perform- ing Mozart, Crumb, or even some Mississippi blues, The Annex Quartet has the capacity to capture an audience’s attention with style and finesse. They revolutionize performances both visually and acoustically and take the audience back in time and to the future, often all in the course of one evening. It’s mission: to give the current generations insight into a specific time in history, through updated takes of music, both through performance and recordings.
