BERGAMOT QUARTET is fueled by a passion for exploring and advocating for the music of living composers, continually expanding the limits of the string quartet’s rich tradition in western classical music. With a priority given to music by women, they aim to place this new, genre-bending music in meaningful dialogue with the histories that precede it with creative programming, community-oriented audience building, and frequent commissioning.

Bergamot values partnership and collaboration as a vital element of their creative work. Included in their 2023 season is a partnership with NYU's dance department, an appearance on the Ecstatic Music Series at Merkin Hall with Circuit des Yeux, an ongoing set of "Cross Quartets/Quintets" with composer Dan Trueman, and a new work to be composed for Bergamot and Latin jazz sextet by percussionist Samuel Torres. Highlights of their 2022 season were the release of their debut album, In The Brink, on New Focus Recordings featuring a work by member Ledah Finck with percussionist Terry Sweeney as guest artist, a co-commission of Darian Thomas with Sō Percussion as part of Sō’s Flexible Commissions project, appearances at the NY City Center with NYC Ballet principal dancer Tiler Peck, performances at Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall, and the participation at the Klangspuren Chamber Lab in Innsbruck.

In addition, Bergamot is particularly excited about helping young people discover their potential as music creators. Recent engagements include residencies at The Peabody Institute, Princeton University, Towson University, being the 2020-2021 virtual ensemble-in-residence for the Junior Bach program at the Peabody Institute and for MATA Jr. 2021.

Bergamot Quartet is Ledah Finck and Sarah Thomas, violins; Amy Tan, viola; and Irène Han, cello. Founded at the Peabody Institute in Baltimore in 2016, Bergamot Quartet is based in New York City and was the Graduate String Quartet in Residence at the Mannes School of Music for 2020-2022.

About the organizer

The NEW YORK COMPOSERS CIRCLE is an artistic and educational organization dedicated to new music — its creation, its performance, and the development of new audiences. Its members and supporters are composers, performers, and music lovers. Its activities include concerts of new music (currently as many as eight each season), monthly salons at which composers play and discuss new works and works in progress for fellow members and guests and hear talks by various members of the new-music community, an annual competition open only to nonmembers, and a program of outreach concerts to benefit the broader community and to attract new concert audiences. The New York Composers Circle, Inc. is an IRS-registered tax-exempt nonprofit corporation under section 501(c)(3), recognized as an educational organization by the New York State Department of Education. Much of our support is through generous individual patron donations, as well as through various grants for arts and educational programming.
