In 2002, four friends decided to join forces and bring a fresh new look and feel to a similar passion they all shared - chamber music. Thus, the Ambrosia Quartet was formed. This dynamic ensemble will thrill you with their interpretations of the very best music written for string quartet, from classical favorites to the most recent compositions of celebrated contemporary composers. Currently, these talented individuals, are violinists Simon Lapointe and Mayu Cipriano, violist Beverly Kane Baker and cellist Rebecca Gilmore. Their newest member, Simon LaPointe, is French Canadian originally and now is serving as the Principal Second Violin for the Virginia Symphony. All four are members of the Virginia Symphony, which has risen over the past decade to be ranked with the very best of the American orchestras. Some might think it no surprise that an excellent orchestra would bring forth an excellent string quartet, but this is not always true. Chamber music ensembles require a rare chemistry to elevate their playing to a special realm. The Ambrosia Quartet has that chemistry, achieves that elevation, and desires to share it with you.

Since the inception of the ensemble, these Virginia Symphony players have explored string quartet works of Haydn, Hailstork and Tchaikovsky in New Beginnings, Glazunov, Shostakovich and Borodin in A Russian Celebration, and Beethoven, Shostakovich and Brahms in the prestigious Feldman Chamber Series program.

The Ambrosians did well by Dohnanyi. Rebecca Gilmore's cello playing was achingly beautiful, and violist Jennifer Snyder offers a consistent feeling of purpose. The motivic developments were intelligently brought out; the intonation was quite good, and the entire piece conveyed a real sense of devotion. The solo lines were passionately rendered by all.
