04/06/2019 Argus Quartet

Buckley, Arms, Amherst College
Saturday, Apr 6, 2019 at 8:00 PM (ET)

Praised for playing with “supreme melodic control and total authority” and “decided dramatic impact” (Calgary Herald), the Argus Quartet has quickly emerged as one of today’s most dynamic and versatile young ensembles, winning First Prize at both the 2017 Concert Artists Guild Victor Elmaleh Competition, and the 2017 M-Prize Chamber Arts Competition.

Recent and upcoming performances internationally include appearances at Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall and Zankel Hall, Roulette, the Albany Symphony’s American Music Festival, Bang on a Can at the Noguchi Museum, the Hear Now Music Festival, Providence College, University of Michigan, James Madison University’s Contemporary Music Festival, Princeton University, the Shalin Liu Performance Center at Rockport Music, and the Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ in Amsterdam.

In the Fall of 2017, the Argus Quartet began a two-year appointment as the Graduate Quartet in Residence at the Juilliard School, where they will work closely with the Juilliard String Quartet. In addition, Juilliard presents Argus’ Lincoln Center recital debut at Alice Tully Hall in May 2018. From 2015-17 the Quartet served as the Fellowship Quartet in Residence at the Yale School of Music (as the ?rst ensemble mentored by the Brentano String Quartet in that capacity), and during the 2016-17 season, they served as the Ernst Stiefel Quartet in Residence at the Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts.
