The Harlem Quartet (Ilmar Gavilán, violin; Melissa White, violin; Jaime Amador, viola; Felix Umansky, cello); Aldo López-Gavilán, piano and guest composer

The members of Harlem Quartet hail from Cuba, Puerto Rico, and the American Midwest, but they call Harlem – with its spectacular diversity and rich artistic history — home. They are dedicated to advancing diversity in classical music while engaging new audiences with varied repertoire. Cuban piano prodigy Aldo López-Gavilán, brother of Harlem Quartet’s Ilmar Gavilán, is known for his mastery of both classical piano repertoire and the Afro-Cuban jazz tradition. His performances with Harlem Quartet offer a dynamic mix of classical repertoire, jazz standards and López-Gavilán’s own compositions.

“bringing a new attitude to classical music, one that is fresh, bracing and intelligent” — Cincinnati Enquirer on Harlem Quartet

“Simply a genius, a star.” — Chucho Valdés on Aldo López-Gavilán
