Website and/or Calendar Links
Praised for playing with “supreme melodic control and total authority” and “decided dramatic impact,” 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 at the University of Michigan—the largest prize for chamber music in the world, of which Krannert Center is a Founding Presenting Partner (Calgary Herald). Argus Quartet’s core mission is to connect with and build up a community of engaged listeners, with the strong belief that today’s ensembles can honor the storied chamber music traditions of our past while forging a new path forward. The Argus Quartet is the graduate quartet in residence at the Juilliard School, where they work closely with the Juilliard String Quartet.
