Review for Friends of the Daponte String Quartet, Demariscotta, ME, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been listening to the DaPonte String Quartet for 20 years--which is as long as it has been a Quartet--and I continue t think it is wonderful! My husband and I moved to Maine from the New York area, where we were used to hearing all kinds of extraordinary music, and we were amazed to find world class music in what seemed like a rural setting. We were also delighted by the intimacy of the settings; we loved the fact that the members of the Quartet became our friends. And we were impressed by the Quartet's generous outreach to the community--their free concerts in schools, for example, and in retirement home, and their concerts to benefit the restoration of historic buildings. Over the years, their programs have grown in sophistication, and their playing in excellence. I find it hard to believe, but they just keep getting better and better!
