Recipients of the 2006 Avery Fisher Career Grant and named Ensemble of the Year by Musical America in 2009, the Pacifica Quartet, which trained in Aspen, has gained international recognition for virtuosity, passionate performances, and daring repertoire. Their performances consistently reveal a depth of musical understanding, yet always sound fresh and spontaneous, inviting the listener to hear even the most familiar works in vivid new ways. The New York Times has praised their “delicacy and clarity,” and Chicago Classical Review called their ensemble playing “impeccable.” The Quartet has played nearly 1500 concerts all over the world, from the monumental cycles of Beethoven and Shostakovich to numerous premieres.
