Description

The Juilliard String Quartet’s founding vision is just as fresh and relevant to today’s ensemble as it was in 1946: “to play new works as if they were established masterpieces, and established masterpieces as if they were new.” The reinvigorated Juilliard, including violist Roger Tapping formerly of the Tak√°cs Quartet, continues its unparalleled history with an extraordinary clarity of tone, unanimity of ensemble and beauty of sound that has been described as “vital and warm-hued.” (The New York Times).
