Winner of the inaugural M-Prize (the world’s largest prize for chamber music), the Calidore String Quartet performs with “extraordinary style and charisma,” “synergistic brilliance and ferocious commitment,” “deep reserves of virtuosity and, above all, irrepressible dramatic instinct” (The New York Times). The Quartet’s Spivey Hall debut includes works by Carolyn Shaw, awarded the 2013 Pulitzer Prize in Music.
“This is an ensemble as capable of whipping up storms as enchanting us with breathless moments of utter magic” (The Scotsman).
“The epitome of confidence and finesse” (Gramophone)
