Escher Quartet
Hailed for its “sheer finesse” by Gramophone Magazine, the Escher String Quartet has received international acclaim for its expressive, nuanced performances that combine unusual textural clarity with a rich, blended sound. Currently String Quartet in Residence at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas and Tuesday Musical in Akron, Ohio, the ensemble serves as Season Artists of The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center. The quartet has collaborated with numerous prestigious artists, including Leon Fleischer, Lynn Harrell and Joshua Bell. In 2013 the quartet became one of the very few chamber ensembles to be awarded the prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant.
