The Colburn Chamber Music Society will present "one of the standout quartets of the new generation" (The New York Times), the Ebene Quartet (Pierre Colombet, violin; Gabriel le Magadure, violin; Mathieu Herzog, viola; Raphael Merlin, cello), in its second concert of the 2012-2013 season on Sunday, November 18, 2012 at Zipper Hall in Los Angeles. Joining them will be The Colburn School's very own multi-award-winning ensemble, the Calidore String Quartet (Jeffrey Myers, violin; Ryan Meehan, violin; Jeremy Berry, viola; Estelle Choi, cello).
With a program featuring works by Ravel, Mendelssohn and Schubert, audiences won't want to miss these four talented Parisians, whom the Los Angeles Times has stated is, "a quartet to catch sooner rather than later," nor the Los Angeles-based Calidore String Quartet.

In addition to the concert, The Ebene Quartet will lead a master class at The Colburn School, which is open to the public on Wednesday, November 14 at 7pm and teach conservatory students privately and in chamber ensembles during their eight-day residency. This unique access to one of the finest string quartets in the world today, will allow students to attain an additional educational experience, rich in culture and musical excellence that they will take with them throughout their musical lives and future performances.
Richard Beene, Dean of the Conservatory said: "The Faculty and I are thrilled to be bringing The Ebène Quartet back to The Colburn School their fourth visit in three years, not only for an exceptional concert, but also for the excellent vision, expertise and additional educational influence that they bring to our students during this residency. The quartets' presence on our campus further exposes our students to the highest level of musical artistry education available today."
