Winners of the prestigious 2014 Avery Fisher Career Grant, the Calder Quartet captivates audiences exploring a broad spectrum of repertoire, always striving to fulfill the composer’s vision in their performances. The group’s distinctive artistry is exemplified by a musical curiosity brought to everything they perform and has led them to be called “one of America’s most satisfying — and most enterprising — quartets”. ~ Los Angeles Times
