2 Juilliard String Quartet

Juilliard String Quartet

Saturday, October 8, 2016, 8pm

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 recordings of the Bartok and Schoenberg Quartets, as well as those of Debussy, Ravel and Beethoven won Grammy Awards, and in 2011 the Quartet became the first classical music ensemble to receive a Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences.

Devoted master teachers, the members of the Juilliard String Quartet offer classes and open rehearsals when on tour. At The Juilliard School, where they are the String Quartet in Residence, all are sought-after members of the string and chamber music faculty.

The JSQ is celebrating the 2015/16 season, the Quartet’s 70th, with concert tours in North America, Europe and Asia; in 2016-17, they tour for the first time with cellist Astrid Schween, who succeeds Joel Krosnick as cellist following his retirement after 42 seasons. 

"The Juilliard String Quartet can plausibly be called the most important American quartet in history."
