The unique sound of the Klang String Quartet will again be heard on campus as the Technology and Society Forum celebrates creative diversity. "Klang" means “sound” in German, and bringing their distinctive blend of musical interests and influences to NJIT will be Matthew Goeke (cello), Gregor Kitzis (violin), Rieko Kawabata (violin), and Yi-Ping Yang (viola).
The individual members of this exciting 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 various 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. After numerous appearances that include national and international chamber music and jazz festivals, they have united to greet audiences together with a resounding, appealing Klang!
