“A level of individual technical precision and a collective musical purpose that is endlessly compelling. Sheer brilliance.”—The Strad

Acclaimed for their profound musical insight and rare tonal beauty, the Escher String Quartet “hold[s] the listener spellbound from first bar to last” (BBC Music Magazine). A former BBC New Generation Artist, the quartet has performed at the BBC Proms at Cadogan Hall and is a regular guest at Wigmore Hall. In its hometown of New York City, the ensemble serves as season artists of The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center. Escher Quartet is joined by Grammy-winning guitarist Jason Vieaux. “Among the elite of today’s classical guitarists” (Gramophone), Vieaux is “perhaps the most precise and soulful classical guitarist of his generation” (NPR).
