Horizons Series 3 | “Banff International SQ Competition Winner” – Isidore String Quartet

“Exquisite poise and balance…the Isidore projected the infinite variety that Beethoven mines. Time stood still…exceptional”

— Chicago Classical Review

Winners of the 14th Banff International String Quartet Competition in 2022, the New York City-based Isidore String Quartet was formed in 2019 with a vision to revisit, rediscover, and reinvigorate the repertory. The quartet is heavily influenced by the Juilliard String Quartet and the idea of approaching the established as if it were brand new, and the new as if it were firmly established. The four began as an ensemble at the Juilliard School, and following a break during the global pandemic reconvened at the Kneisel Hall Chamber Music Festival in the summer of 2021 under the tutelage of Joel Krosnick.
