"Klang" — it means “sound” in German, and on February 16 the Klang String Quartet will bring their unique blend of musical interests and influences to NJIT as part of the Technology and Society Forum’s celebration of creativity in all its forms. Performing will be Matthew Goeke (cello), Gregor Kitzis (violin), Rieko Kawabata (violin), and Yi-Ping Yang (viola).

The individual members of this exciting new ensemble have performed with early music groups such as the Arcadia Baroque Ensemble, the New England Bach Festival and the Grand Tour Orchestra, with major symphony orchestras, and with rock, jazz and pop icons ranging from David Bowie, Enya, David Byrne, Iggy Pop and Mixx 22 to Don Byron, Anthony Braxton and the George Gee Swing Orchestra. They have also recorded on a number of labels, and their TV appearances include Saturday Night Live and the David Letterman, Conan O’Brien, Rosie O’Donnell and Jay Leno shows.

Members of the quartet have had stellar careers as solo performers and with other ensembles for many years. Now, after numerous appearances that include national and international chamber music and jazz festivals, they have united to greet audiences together with a resounding Klang!
