|Description:||Sybarite5’s eclectic repertoire and dynamic performance style turns heads throughout the music world. The first string quintet to win the Concert Artists Guild International Competition, Sybarite5 is as comfortable performing contemporary music by Radiohead as it is classics by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. From the moment their bows hit the strings, the talented, diverse musicians take audiences on a ride that engages the senses and redefines the rules. “That impassioned playing, those hard-driving rhythms, the blissed-out faces of the mostly young audience,” observes a Washington Post reviewer, add up to “genuine, spontaneous … excitement.” Formed at the Aspen Music Festival, Sybarite5 includes violinists Sami Merdinian and Sarah Whitney, violist Angela Pickett, cellist Laura Metcalf, and bassist Louis Levitt. Disturb the Silence, the group’s debut extended-play disc, features music by Radiohead, Astor Piazzolla, and a pair of original works. The 2011 release soared to the top ten on the Billboard charts. Everything in its Right Place, the 2012 follow-up CD, remixes ten Radiohead songs. “Their rock-star status … is well deserved,” writes a Sarasota Herald Tribune reviewer. “Their classically honed technique mixed with grit and all-out passionate attack transfixes the audience.” The New York City quintet’s program will be announced from the stage.|
