Juilliard String Quartet

With unparalleled artistry and enduring vigour, the Juilliard String Quartet continues to inspire audiences around the world. After 75 years the quartet has grown to an American legend and institution.


The Juilliard String Quartet became the first classical music ensemble to receive a lifetime achievement award from the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences in 2011.

Past seasons have taken the renowned ensemble to Hong Kong, Singapore, Shanghai, London, Oslo, Copenhagen, Athens, Vancouver, Toronto, New York, and, due to numerous re-invitations, across the United States. The quartet has performed new works by composers Lembit Beecher, Jesse Jones, and Richard Wernick.

After concerts at the Amsterdam Biennale and the Vienna Musikverein, the Juilliard String Quartet will return to Europe in 2022/23, performing in Dresden, Essen, Meran, Prague, Heidelberg and Stuttgart, among other cities.

A special highlight of the upcoming season will be the premiere of two string quartets dedicated to the Juilliard String Quartet by composer Jörg Widmann.

Reviews

CD Review Strings magazine  | Miranda Wilson |  July-August 2021

Certainly the ensemble’s famed rhythmic precision and keen feeling for instrumental balance remains firmly in place, as does its ability to “play hard” without any unpleasant roughness of tone, but Zhulla also brought to her solos, especially in the slow movement of the “American” Quartet, a welcome degree of passion and spontaneity too. It sounds like she’ll make a fine addition to the team. Classics Today | David Hurwitz | New York | November 19, 2018
