Ronan Lefkowitz and Si-Jing Huang, violins
Mark Ludwig, viola
Sato Knudsen, cello

Taking its name from the New England novelist Nathaniel Hawthorne, the Hawthorne String Quartet includes Boston Symphony Orchestra violinists Ronan Lefkowitz and Si-Jing Huang, violist Mark Ludwig and cellist Sato Knudsen. Since its inception in 1986 the Quartet has performed extensively throughout Europe, South America, Japan and the United States, including major festivals such as Tanglewood, Ravinia, Aspen and Prague Spring. The Quartet has an expansive repertoire ranging from the classics of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries to contemporary works. It has distinguished itself internationally by championing the works of composers persecuted during the Nazi regime, with an emphasis on the Czech composers incarcerated in the Theresienstadt concentration camp (Terezín).

Displaying a diverse repertoire, the Hawthorne Quartet has produced a series of recordings featuring chamber music by the composers Arthur Foote, Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, Thomas Oboe Lee and David Post in addition to several motion picture and documentary soundtracks. The Quartet has performed on radio and television worldwide and in documentaries. They were appointed Quartet-in-Residence at Boston College in 1998. They regularly conduct master-classes and residency program in residencies on US campuses.
