Description

The music world is exploding with string quartets, and the more there are, the higher the standard is set. The Escher Quartet, whose first prominent performances were as a CMS Two ensemble, has emerged as one of a handful that have reached the loftiest levels of technical perfection, musical integrity, and performance charisma. CMS is proud to present them in a program of the quartet’s own design.
