Currently in its 40th season, the American String Quartet is internationally recognized as one of the world’s finest ensembles and has spent decades honing the luxurious sound for which it is famous. Critics and colleagues hold the Quartet in high esteem and many of today’s leading artists and composers seek out the Quartet for collaborations.
Formed in 1974 when its original members were students at The Juilliard School, the American String Quartet was launched by winning both the Coleman Competition and the Naumburg Chamber Music Award in the same year.
The group will be accompanied by guest clarinetist, Richard Stoltzman and they plan to perform Beethovan’s String Quartet in C Minor, Op. 18, No. 4, Mozart’s Clarinet Quintet in a Major, K 481 and Brahms String Quartet in C Minor, Op 15, No.1.
Meet the musicians and enjoy refreshments at the post-concert reception.
