About the Artists:

The Escher String Quartet has received acclaim for its profound musical insight and rare tonal beauty. A former BBC New Generation Artist and recipient of the Avery Fisher Career Grant, the quartet has performed at the BBC Proms at Cadogan Hall and is a regular guest at Wigmore Hall. In its home town of New York, the ensemble serves as season artists of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center.

Recordings of the complete Mendelssohn quartets and beloved romantic quartets of Dvorak, Borodin, and Tchaikovsky were released on the BIS label in 2015-18 and received with the highest acclaim. The Escher's most recent recording, the complete quartets of Charles Ives and Samuel Barber, was met with equal excitement (Strad Magazine called it "a first-rate release all around"). The Quartet has also recorded the complete Zemlinsky string quartets in two volumes, released on the Naxos label.

The Escher Quartet takes its name from the Dutch graphic artist M.C. Escher, inspired by Escher's method of interplay between individual components working together to form a whole.
