The Calidore String Quartet is renowned for its “deep reserves of virtuosity and irrepressible dramatic instinct” (New York Times). The Los Angeles Times described the musicians as “astonishing,” their playing “shockingly deep,” approaching “the kind of sublimity other quartets spend a lifetime searching.” The Washington Post noted that “four more individual musicians are unimaginable, yet these speak, breathe, think and feel as one.” For more than a decade, the Calidore has enjoyed performances and residencies in the world’s major venues and festivals, released multiple critically acclaimed recordings, and won numerous awards. The Calidore is recognized as one of the world’s foremost interpreters of a vast repertory; from the cycles of quartets by Beethoven and Mendelssohn to works of celebrated contemporary voices like Grygory Kurtag, Jörg Widmann, and Caroline Shaw.
