The mission of keeping a rare musical flame alight is a noble and often challenging one, but The Bohemian Quartet is more than up to the task. The acclaimed Rhode Island-based ensemble-featuring virtuoso violinist and arranger, Stan Renard, Nancy Richardson on viola, Christine Harrington on cello, and David Zinno on bass-specializes in music of the Romany or "Gypsy" tradition, along with related Eastern European folk styles. Together they've made a commitment to the genre, and aspire to performing it with both reverence and adventure. Indeed, like every good curator, the BQ at once embraces the ancient traditions, and still wanders off in newer, lovely, unpredictable directions.
"Violinist, Stan Renard is a highly accomplished player and has the czardas and hora styles at his fingertips (….) the performances are very enjoyable (…) the musicians play up quite a storm." STRAD Magazine August 2011 (from review of "Beyond Tradition" the Bohemian Quartet's CD)
