Giancarlo Latta, Violin
Fiercely committed to the music of our time, violinist, writer, and composer Giancarlo Latta is interested in the intersection and convergence of music old and new, a passion he explores principally as a member of the acclaimed New York-based Argus Quartet. He has performed in venues as diverse as the Rothko Chapel (Houston), Royal Albert Hall (London) for the BBC Proms, and Neubad (Lucerne, Switzerland), a converted swimming pool. Past and upcoming highlights include Lincoln Center’s Great Performers series with Argus, performances with flutist Claire Chase in Houston and violinist Patricia Kopatchinskaja in Lucerne, and works by Tyshawn Sorey and Anna Thorvaldsdottir at the Spoleto Festival USA. Giancarlo studied with Paul Kantor at Rice University and Almita Vamos at the Music Institute of Chicago. He loves books, birds, and coffee.
