Amplified alt-classical NYC string quartet Ethel fuses genre-defying world, blues and classical music, and plays it all with rock-concert intensity. Virtuosic showpieces, relaxed humor, romantic tenor arias, the sizzling energy of tangos and gypsy folk songs, and a World Accordion Champion – this is Quartetto Gelato. This performance will feature the music of Latin America from the quartet’s latest recording CD “Musica Latina”.
