Suddenly The Stars

Semiosis Quartet with Megan Ihnen

Described by the Boston Musical Intelligencer as “astonishing,” Boston-based Semiosis Quartet is quickly gaining a reputation as a dynamic ensemble dedicated to presenting the string quartet repertoire of the 20th and 21st centuries. The quartet’s name refers to the process of using a message or symbol to communicate. The audience interprets the message to derive meaning. The study of this process crosses the boundaries of linguistics, anthropology, and biological sciences. Likewise, Semiosis Quartet demonstrates how the contemporary string quartet repertoire is a vehicle for a diverse collection of narratives from around the world.
