Founded in 1946, the ever-evolving Juilliard String Quartet has become a living American legend. The JSQ’s newest member is internationally recognized soloist, chamber artist, teacher and local treasure, cellist Astrid Schween.

Widely known as the “quintessential American string quartet,” the Juilliard has been recognized for the boldness of its interpretation of the classics, with an equal and parallel tradition of championing the new — a vibrant combination of the familiar and the daring. The Quartet’s sound is famously characterized by clarity of structure, compelling rhythmic drive and an extraordinary unanimity of purpose, no matter the work at hand.

“The Juilliard’s bracing, rhythmically adept performance evoked a mechanism of interlocking parts, meticulously built to create a single, strong gesture.” -Boston Globe
