The Calidore String Quartet is a recent Avery Fisher Career Grant and Lincoln Center Emerging Artist Award recipient. The multi-award-winning ensemble is based in New York and already recognized as one of America’s foremost quartets with a steadily growing reputation in Europe. The players wanted to find their own musical standpoint in the current environment of unrest and division. So they identified four masterworks from great composers who, whether in the midst of personal emotional turmoil or external conflict, seemed to find a cathartic path towards optimism through music – Mendelssohn, Janáček, Prokofiev, and Golijov.
