Ciompi Quartet Lunchtime Classics No. 1 

When: Tue., Sept. 21, 12-1 p.m. 2010
Price: Free

Should you happen to be on Duke's West Campus at noon, treat yourself to a mentally refreshing pause with a free performance by Duke's resident—and very fine—string quartet. The group was founded in 1965 by violinist Giorgio Ciompi; its current incarnation includes violinists Eric Pritchard and Hsiao-mei Ku, violist Jonathan Bagg and Fred Raimi, who, with his beautiful 1691 Italian cello, has been providing the quartet's low notes since 1974.

Under the auspices of Duke Performances, the quartet will play Mozart's 1786 String Quartet in D Major, K. 499, known as "Hoffmeister" for the composer's friend and publisher, in the soul-comforting, deeply civilized Rare Book Room in Perkins Library. The intimate, book-lined room and sprightly playing may leave you wishing to hit Replay. If so, attend the Ciompi Quartet's first full concert of the year Oct. 2 and hear the piece again.—Kate Dobbs Ariail
