Juilliard String Quartet

Seligman Performing Arts Center
22305 W. 13 Mile Road, Beverly Hills

Founded in 1946, the ever-evolving Juilliard String Quartet has become a living American legend. Widely known as the “quintessential American string quartet,” the Juilliard has been recognized for the boldness of its interpretation of the classics, with an equal and parallel tradition of championing the new — a vibrant combination of the familiar and the daring. The Quartet’s sound is famously characterized by clarity of structure, compelling rhythmic drive and an extraordinary unanimity of purpose, no matter the work at hand.

The Quartet's program features two remarkable works of Beethoven, including Op. 127, the first of Beethoven's revered late string quartets. Additionally, the Quartet brings a contemporary work by James MacMillan, called "an arrestingly powerful and sure-footed masterwork, ideally proportioned, economically argued and always evincing a riveting narrative and emotional scope" by Gramaphone Magazine.

"The most important American Quartet in history"
