Winner of a 2023 Avery Fisher Career Grant and the 14th Banff International String Quartet Competition in 2022, the Isidore String Quartet was formed in 2019 at the Juilliard School with a vision to revisit, rediscover, and reinvigorate the repertory.

The name Isidore recognizes the ensemble’s musical connection to the Juilliard Quartet: one of that group’s early members was legendary violinist Isidore Cohen.

Additionally, it acknowledges a shared affection for a certain libation – legend has it a Greek monk named Isidore concocted the first genuine vodka recipe for the Grand Duchy of Moscow!
