Top US string quartet changes viola, againmain
It’s all musical chairs at the Pacifica Quartet, which has the coveted residency at Bloomington Indiana.
A year ago the Pacifica changed two players, a violinist and violist.
Now we hear that Mark Holloway is coming down from New York to replace the violist who replaced the violist.
Got that? (Don’t go looking at the quartet’s website or social media because they haven’t been updated in months.)
Violist Masumi Rostad quit a year ago and his replacement, Guy Ben-Ziony, has now followed him through the swing doors. Guy does not even mention the Pacifica on his website. Like it never happened.
I guess we’ll be hearing from their PR.
