ABOUT THE ARTISTS
The New York-based Harlem Quartet, currently
quartet-in-residence at London’s Royal College
of Music, has been praised for its “panache” by
The New York Times and hailed in the Cincinnati
Enquirer for “bringing a new attitude to classical
music, one that is fresh, bracing and intelligent.”
It has also won plaudits from such veteran
musicians as GRAMMY-winning woodwind virtuoso
Ted Nash of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra,
who declared in a May 2018 Playbill article, “Harlem
Quartet is one of the greatest string quartets I have ever heard. They can play anything.” Since its public
debut at Carnegie Hall in 2006, the ensemble has thrilled audiences and students in 47 states as well as in the U.K., France, Belgium, Brazil, Panama, Canada, Venezuela, Japan, Ethiopia, and South Africa.
