Acclaimed for musical insights and rare tonal beauty, and championed by the Emerson String Quartet, the Escher String Quartet has toured extensively throughout the U.S., Europe, Australia and Asia. They served as BBC New Generation Artists and gave debuts at the BBC Proms, are winners of the prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant and perform as Artists of The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center. For this program, they bring their special sheen to Mendelssohn’s gripping Quartet in F minor, opus 80, saturated with poetic melancholy and written in memory of his beloved sister Fannie; to Quartet No. 3 by Bartók, whose string quartets in particular achieve a fusion of folk and Western art music; and Beethoven’s “Razumovsky” Quartet in E minor, opus 59, No. 2, resplendent in its cosmic grandeur. Three landmark works of chamber music delivered by new stars in the quartet firmament.

“Clearly one of the finest quartets of their generation.” —The Guardian

The Escher String Quartet: Adam Barnett-Hart, violin; Aaron Boyd, violin; Pierre La Pointe, viola; Brook Speltz, cello
