David Faber is the cellist of the Dudok Quartet. Based in the Netherlands, the young group first set itself apart by choosing to call themselves after an architect, not a composer (or instrument builder). In an interview with Cara Lieurance, Faber says Willem Marinus Dudok was a modernist who never forgot the past. In their preview of the Dudok's livestreamed concert for Fontana at 7:30 pm on Saturday, April 17, Faber draws parallels between Brahms and Bartok and how the quartet has adapted their instruments to work with gut and steel strings to match both.
