The Ehnes Quartet’s performance for Friends of Chamber Music of Miami made clear this 3-year-old ensemble has a big future if its busy members can find the time to stick with it.
First violinist James Ehnes is a concert violinist with concerto and recital performances around the world. Second violinist Amy Schwartz Moretti is director of the Robert McDuffie Institute for Strings at Mercer University. Violist Richard O’Neill is a member of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center. And cellist Robert DeMaine has just won one of the plums of the classical world, becoming principal cellist of the Los Angeles Philharmonic.
Their performance Sunday at St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in Palmetto Bay was as musically accomplished and technically finished as that of the best-known quartets.
