The Diderot String Quartet – named after the eighteenth-century French philosopher and Boccherini enthusiast Denis Diderot – brings a fresh approach to works of the 18th and 19th centuries. The group came together in 2012 after having first met at Oberlin Conservatory and the Juilliard School. The four musicians share a background in historical performance and a passion for the string quartet genre. For their first release with Bear Machine Records, Diderot performs a pillar in the canon of quartet repertoire, Mozart’s String Quartet No. 19 in C major, K. 465, known by the nickname “Dissonance.”
