Isidore String Quartet

When it fits, it fits
It is rare for a young ensemble to win one of the most prestigious string quartet competitions just three years after its foundation. The Isidore Quartet has achieved just that: founded in 2019, it won the jury of the 14th Banff Competition in 2022. The young ensemble from New York is characterized by their individual sound and extremely lively interpretations.

The musicians benefit particularly from the Alexander Technique, expanding mental concert performance through increased body awareness. It is rare to experience a young string quartet so relaxed, so at ease and at the same time so vital and mature!
After concerts at the Edinburgh Festival, the Lucerne Festival, in Hamburg (Elbphilharmonie) and Linz (Brucknerhaus), the quartet will perform in Amsterdam (Concertgebouw), Berlin (Konzerthaus), Cologne (Philharmonie), Bonn (Beethoven-Haus) and Stuttgart (Liederhalle).

Reviews

“Exquisite poise and balance….the Isidore projected the infinite variety that Beethoven mines. Time stood still….exceptional.” Chicago Classical Review | January 14th, 2023
