One of the preeminent ensembles of their generation, the Escher String Quartet presents a program of blockbuster favorites. Featuring pieces by Mozart, Dvorak (the beloved “American quartet), and Barber, including his heartbreaking “Adagio for Strings”.
The Escher String Quartet has been hailed for its performances that combine profound textural clarity with a rich sound. A former BBC New Generation Artist, the quartet has performed at the BBC Proms at Cadogan Hall, is a regular guest at Wigmore Hall, and serves as Season Artists of The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center. In 2013, the Escher String Quartet received the prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant—a rarity for a chamber ensemble.
The ensemble has made an impression throughout Europe, performing at Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw, London’s Kings Place, Auditorium du Louvre, and more. The Escher Quartet also continues to flourish in its home country, performing at Alice Tully Hall in New York, Kennedy Center in Washington DC, Chamber Music San Francisco, and more. The group’s release of the complete Mendelssohn Quartets has earned the highest critical acclaim.
With a passion for education, the Escher String Quartet currently serves as String Quartet in Residence at Southern Methodist University. They have also given masterclasses at institutions such as London’s Royal Academy of Music.
