Now in its 38th concert season, the American String Quartet has long been one of the world’s most esteemed ensembles of its kind. Formed in 1974 when its original members were students at the Juilliard School, the Quartet was launched by winning both the Coleman Competition and the Naumburg Chamber Music Award in the same year. Innovative programming and a creative approach to education has resulted in notable residencies including at the Aspen Music Festival in Colorado (1974 to the present), the Manhattan School of Music (1984 to the present) and a summer residency at China’s Great Wall International Music Academy in the summer of 2012. The American is known both for its presentations of the complete quartets of Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Bartók and Schönberg, and as champions of new music.
For this LMMC concert, the Quartet is joined by brothers Roberto and Andrés Díaz. Roberto, violist with an international reputation, is also President and CEO of the Curtis Institute; Andrés, winner of the 1986 Naumburg Cello Competition, was awarded an Avery Fisher Career Grant in 1998.
