About the Iris Quartet

Formed in 2006 by four virtuoso musicians who equally devoted towards performing as well as educating, the Iris Quartet has presented concerts in some of New York’s finest venues including Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Merkin Hall, Scandinavia House–The Nordic Center in America, Metropolitan Play House, Opera America, and The Cathedral of St. John the Divine. The Iris Quartet has commissioned new works by composers Luis Conti, Nike DiBerardino, Michael Kosch. as well as music for string quartet from China, Albania and Japan – where the members of the quartet original from. As the Artist In Residency at Metropolitan Play House, Iris Quartet has paired with the theater’s culture focus-to promote American composers in the Twenty Century and through the history.

In addition to performing, each member of the Iris Quartet is involved in teaching their respective instrument, and also teaching music appreciation to audiences new to classical music. While each has trained at New York’s most renowned music schools, formative studies in Korea, China, Japan, and the United States also inform their musical interpretation.

This season, Iris welcomes the guest violinist Christophe Giovaninetti, the former first violinist of the would class Ysaye Quartet and the Elysee Quartet. It’s going to be an exciting season!
