Inspired by the unique temperament of the composer Charles Ives, the Ives Quartet is acclaimed for revelling in the unfamiliar and championing an eclectic repertoire, mixing established masterworks with neglected compositions of early-twentieth-century America, and commissioned new pieces. The quartet appears in notable chamber music series and festivals nationwide bringing American and European experience and sensibilities which draw on the solo, chamber music, and recording careers of its members. Each is an acclaimed performer, earning distinction with renowned ensembles, including the Chester and Stanford Quartets, I Solisti Veneti, the Chicago String Trio, and the San Francisco Contemporary Music Players They have commissioned works from distinguished composers including William Bolcom and received grants to support recordings of American string quartets. Recordings on the Laurel Records, Music and Arts, and Naxos labels include music of William Bolcom, Ben Johnston, Marc Neikrug, Donald Crockett and, most recently, Quincy Porter. They produce a home season concert series in the San Francisco Bay Area where its members are committed musician-teachers at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music and Stanford University, as well as at music festivals around the world.
