Argus Quartet

Co-First Prize Winner, 2017 CAG Competition

Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall

Sponsored by Marilyn G. and Joseph B. Schwartz, longtime friends of CAG

The Argus Quartet has quickly emerged as one of today’s most dynamic and versatile young ensembles, winning First Prize at both the 2017 CAG Victor Elmaleh Competition and the 2017 M-Prize Chamber Arts Competition. As the current Graduate Resident String Quartet at The Juilliard School, Argus is dedicated to reinvigorating the audience-performer relationship through innovative concerts and diverse programming. In that spirit, the ensemble’s repertoire includes not only masterworks of the chamber music canon, but also a wide range of pieces by living composers.

The program will include:

Haydn: String Quartet in B minor, Op. 33 No. 1
Juri SeoRespiri
Christopher Theofanidis: Visions and Miracles
Ted Hearne: Overlay (For David Lang)
Janáček: String Quartet No. 2, “Intimate Letters”
