Pacifica Quartet Announces Projects and Collaborations
The Grammy Award-winning Pacifica Quartet – in residence at both Indiana University’s Jacobs School of Music and the Aspen Music Festival – is beloved by presenters and audiences around the world. Over the past twenty-five years, the Pacifica has achieved international recognition for its virtuosic and exuberant performance style and has carved a niche for itself as the preeminent interpreter of string quartet cycles.
Here’s just some of the unanimously positive feedback that we’ve received from their performances this season:
"They have never played better; indeed, this is one of the very finest string quartets on the planet.” — Stephen Wogaman, President, Chamber Music Society of Detroit
"They are playing better than ever, if you can believe it. Their current configuration brings the group to an even higher level than before. There is no doubt in my mind that the Pacifica is in the top rank of American quartets onstage today.” — Daniel Levenstein, Director, Chamber Music San Francisco
“We have rarely experienced a concert or series of concerts as profound, beautiful and breathtaking as the Pacifica Quartet’s Beethoven cycle. They gave the best performance I have ever heard of Op. 59 No. 3, bar none. The fugue was absolutely incredible.” — Pat Zagelow, Executive Director, Portland Friends of Chamber Music
The endlessly imaginative Pacifica Quartet will continue to thrill audiences in upcoming seasons with an exploration of the remarkable cycle of works for string quartet by Arnold Schoenberg; a program celebrating the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment, which granted women the right to vote; and exciting collaborations with pianist Marc-André Hamelin, guitarist Sharon Isbin, clarinetist Anthony McGill, cellist Johannes Moser, and composers Julia Wolfe, Ben Shirley, and David Dzubay.
