ESCHER STRING QUARTET

Adam Barnett-Hart, violin I • Wu Jie, violin II
Pierre Lapointe, viola • Dane Johansen, cello

The Escher String Quartet has received acclaim for its profound musical insight and rare tonal beauty. Championed by the Emerson String Quartet, the group was on the BBC New Generation Artists scheme from 2010–2012, giving débuts at both the Wigmore Hall and the BBC Proms at Cadogan Hall. In its home town of New York the ensemble serves as artists of The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, where they presented a critically acclaimed three-concert series featuring the quartets of Benjamin Britten. In 2013, the quartet became one of the very few chamber ensembles to be awarded the prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant. Within months of its inception in 2005 the Escher Quartet was invited by both Pinchas Zukerman and Itzhak Perlman to be quartet-in-residence at each artist’s summer festival, the Young Artists Programme at Canada’s National Arts Centre and the Perlman Chamber Music Program on Shelter Island, NY. In addition the quartet has since collaborated with artists including Khatia Buniatishvili, Leon Fleisher, David Finckel, Wu Han, Lynn Harrell, Joseph Kalichstein, and Jason Vieaux, as well as jazz vocalist Kurt Elling.
