Acclaimed for its expressive, nuanced performances combining unusual textural clarity with a rich, blended sound, the Escher Quartet has captured international attention since its founding in 2005. The Escher Quartet takes its name from Dutch graphic artist M.C. Escher, inspired by Escher’s method of interplay between individual components working together to form a whole. A former BBC New Generation Artist, in 2013 the quartet also became one of the very few chamber ensembles to be awarded the prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant. Expect an electrifying performance with works by Haydn, Bartók and Dvorák.
