Music: Kontras Quartet

New to Rendezvous Arts, the Kontras Quartet has been described as "a tightly crafted and beautiful instrument" (CVNC Arts Journal) and has been commended by Gramophone Magazine for their "scrupulous shading and control" and "enjoyable musical personality" (Fanfare Magazine). Kontras means "contrasts" in the Afrikaans language - fitting for a string ensemble whose colorful repertoire spans centuries, genres, and continents.


Artist: Lewis Ackenbach

Visual artist/painter Lewis Ackenbach is also new to Rendezvous and we couldn’t be more excited to watch him paint as the Kontras Quartet performs. “Color, movement, expressivity, freedom of gesture are attributes shared by painting and jazz as both art forms evolved since the early 20th Century. Modernists creating visual art famously including Jackson Pollock, Stuart Davis and Piet Mondrian were inspired by live performances and recordings of improvisational music.
