Gramophone Magazine called the Calidore String Quartet “a miracle of unified thought.” This vibrant, young ensemble won the inaugural 2016 M-Prize Chamber Arts Competition, which has the largest award of any competition of its kind, and the 2016 Borletti-Buitoni Trust Fellowship, the first North Americans to be so honored. With Calidore’s return to Impromptu, we’ll hear what has earned them such high praise, as well as a place on the prestigious roster of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center Two.
