A conductor-less ensemble of soloists, comprising top alumni of the national Sphinx Competition for young black and Latino string players, this 18-member professional string orchestra earned rave reviews from the New York Times in December of 2004, during their highly acclaimed debut at Carnegie Hall.
Allan Kozinn of The Times described their performances as “first-rate in every way” and the ensemble to have “produced a more beautiful, precise and carefully shaped sound than some fully professional orchestras that come through Carnegie Hall in the course of the year.”
The Sphinx Virtuosi with the Catalyst Quartet offers a diverse program featuring well-known repertoire in addition to works by African American and Latino composers, including works by Mozart, Piazzolla, Michael Abels, Coleridge-Taylor Perkinson and others.
“Overflowing energy, the Catlyst Quartet – another branch of the Sphinx Organization –performed … with relentless rhythmic force.” -Chicago Classical Music
