“In a scene crowded with excellent young ensembles, the Calidore String Quartet can assert itself with pride.” The New York Times

The sought-after chamber ensemble Calidore String Quartet is hailed as “remarkable for the precision of their expression, their understated but relentless intensity” (Los Angeles Times) and heralded as “the epitome of confidence and finesse” (Gramophone). Demonstrating skill and maturity beyond the musicians’ years, the Calidore received the 2017 Lincoln Center Emerging Artist Award. The quartet makes its Santa Barbara debut with a sweeping program that includes Mendelssohn, Janácek and its lauded interpretation of Beethoven.

Mendelssohn: String Quartet No. 3 in D Major,
op. 44, no. 1
Janácek: String Quartet No. 1 (“Kreutzer Sonata”)
Beethoven: String Quartet No. 9 in C Major, op. 59, no. 3
