The Escher String Quartet has received acclaim for its expressive, nuanced performances that combine unusual textural clarity with a rich, blended sound.  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.

“The ensemble’s playing was notable for its ideal blend of savage energy and wistful introspection.” -The New York Times
