Pacifica Quartet Finds a New Home

March 8, 2010

THE name of a string quartet can echo the place of its inception, as with the original Budapest Quartet and the Juilliard String Quartet. Other quartets, like the Busch and Arditti, have borne the names of their founders. You can find an ensemble named for virtually any composer who ever wrote a string quartet of consequence. And then there is the Pacifica Quartet, one of the fastest-rising ensembles today, named, evidently, for a youthful pipe dream.

Pacifica Quartet
Members: Simin Ganatra, violin I • Sibbi Bernhardsson, violin II
