With unparalleled artistry and enduring vigour, the Juilliard String Quartet continues to inspire audiences around the world with its performances. Founded in 1946 and widely known as “the quintessential American string quartet,” the Juilliard draws on a deep and vital engagement with the classics, while embracing the mission of championing new works – a vibrant combination of the familiar and the daring.

Each performance of the Juilliard Quartet is a unique experience, bringing together the four members’ profound understanding and total commitment to sharing the wonders of the string quartet literature.

“The Juilliard still plays, magically, like a single four-voiced instrument, and the music it makes sounds like the most natural and inevitable thing in the world.” –Broad Street Review
