Juilliard String Quartet
Sunday, November 12 @ 3:30 pm
The history of the Juilliard String Quartet with Coleman is a story in itself. This will be the Quartet’s 21st appearance, the first of which took place at the Pasadena Playhouse in 1951. Founded in 1946, the Quartet recently celebrated its 70th anniversary, and also welcomed its newest member, cellist Astrid Schween. In 2011, the Quartet became the first classical music ensemble to receive a Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences.
The Boston Globe said it best: “The Juilliard String Quartet can plausibly be called the most important American quartet in history…. Some groups seem to wrestle with their past and legacy; the Juilliard seems completely revitalized.”
Haydn — Quartet in D Major, Op. 76, No. 5, “Largo”
