Formed at the Colburn Conservatory of Music in Los Angeles in 2010, the Calidore Quartet is composed of four young talented up-and-coming musicians who together have won top prizes in the United States and internationally including the Grand Prize and Gold Medal at the 2011 Fischoff Chamber Music Competition. The Calidore Quartet has the rare ability to capture “the occasion when technique is overwhelmed by the drama of a work” (Classic 107). They perform three popular quartets from Haydn, Hindemith and Beethoven but you’ll hear these favorites like you’re hearing them for the first time as the Calidore make every piece seem as though it was written just for them.
One extremely promising string quartet is chosen each year to complete a year-long residency at Caramoor. The quartet-in-residence lends their time and talents to Caramoor’s Student Strings program in the secondary schools with a classroom-based program of concerts, conversations, and performance clinics. The Ernst Stiefel Quartet-in-Residence performs at Caramoor throughout their residency, enabling the public to experience these exciting, young players in an intimate setting. The Calidore Quartet is the 15th Ernst Stiefel Quartet-in-Residence at Caramoor. They will be visiting schools in the fall and spring and performing concerts at Caramoor in the fall, spring, and summer.
