About the Event

“Someday My Prince Will Come” says the Disney song. He will indeed, on November 6, and he’s bringing three other princes with him. They are the virtuosos of the Ébène Quartet, Frenchmen known for moving seamlessly and with élan between classical and jazz (“Jazzical”?), enriching performances of each with the magic of the other. “A string quartet that can easily morph into a jazz band,” lauded The New York Times, and in praising their recent Carnegie Hall performance of a Schumann Quartet, The Times said the finale “took on a decidedly jazzy swing.” The Boston Globe hails the Quartet’s non-classical fare as “exciting and ear-opening.” With the second half of the Princeton program devoted to jazz, you might hear some Miles Davis or, in a nod to a local boy, a moving take on Bruce Springsteen’s Streets of Philadelphia, performed with instrumental majesty and surprisingly princely vocals.
