PASTICHE has been acclaimed internationally by professional musicians and audiences alike for its talent and polish, and its intriguingly passionate programming. Actively involved in expanding the repertoire through their transcriptions and commissioning of new works, PASTICHE exhibits fascinating and creative interplay between its members.
Since its inception in 1995, PASTICHE seamlessly blends an eclectic array of styles ranging from the Baroque to works by Pulitzer Prize winning composers to create their own distinctive sound. The quartet has collaborated in several multi-media events and performed in a variety of settings, from Community Concerts to New Music Festivals in fine concert venues throughout the USA. The recipient of many commissions and endowments, Pastiche has recorded with Innova and Centaur Labels. Four virtuoso artists make up this whimsical quartet. Each member has been associated with prominent performing ensembles, venues, and musical institutions and has united in PASTICHE out of a passion for the repertoire and the joy of performance.
"...A most enjoyable and artistically rewarding performance..." --Karel Husa, Composer
