The Calidore String Quartet, one of the most acclaimed and sought after chamber ensembles of their generation, has been heralded as “the epitome of confidence and finesse” (Gramophone Magazine) and “a miracle of unified thought” (La Presse, Montreal). The Quartet made international headlines as the Grand-Prize winner of the 2016 and inaugural M-Prize International Chamber Music Competition, the largest prize for chamber music in the world. Other major highlights of 2016 included being named a BBC New Generation Artist for the 2016-18 seasons and becoming the first North American ensemble to win the Borletti-Buitoni Trust Fellowship. Additionally, the quartet began a three-year residency with the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center Two for the 2016- 2019 seasons.
