The magic of the Calder Quartet was clear in 2002 when it won the Coleman Competition Saunderson Prize, and now with receipt of the 2014 Avery Fisher Career Grant. Inspired by innovative American artist Alexander Calder, the Quartet’s desire to bring immediacy and context to performance creates an artfully crafted musical experience.

Known for work with leading and emerging composers, the Quartet also collaborates with artists across musical genres, spanning the ranges of classical and contemporary music, as well as rock, and visual arts. “The superb Calder Quartet showed that the time-honored string quartet format still provides fertile ground for innovation and surprise in the hands of imaginative, skillful creators,” declared the New York Times.
