Borromeo String Quartet WATCH the Music!
"The Borromeo has always impressed with their uncanny sense of cohesion and unity; as a great pianist plays a solo work with complete control and purpose, so too do the members of the Borromeo Quartet subsume their personalities into a marvelous gestalt which brings to life the notes of composers." --Christian Hertzog, Sandiego.com

    Since performing for us in 1994, this quartet has grown in maturity and depth, as well as creating additional appeal for listeners by going digital. Their original idea to record every live performance so as to make it accessible to audiences after the fact, not only allowed for specific memories to be held, but as an acute tool for improvement in the ensemble. By incorporating four lap top computers into their performance, all of which hold their sheet music, they can project the actual four part score, in the composer's handwriting, to be viewed by the audience.  This is a special multimedia experience for our audience, with our small venue.

    Since their explosive debut in 1989, the critically acclaimed Borromeo String Quartet have become one of the most sought after strings quartets in the world, performing over 100 concerts of classical and contemporary music across three continents each season. Audiences and critics alike champion their revealing explorations of Beethoven, Bartok, Schoenberg, Shostakovich, and Golijov, and their affinity for making even the most challenging contemporary repertoire approachable and enlightening. The Borromeo Quartet's long-standing and celebrated residency at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum has been called "one of the defining experiences of civilization in Boston" [Boston Globe] and their ongoing series at the Tenri Cultural Institute in New York has been hailed as "one of New York's best kept secrets" [New York Sun].

    As Quartet-in-Residence at the prestigious New England Conservatory of Music for seventeen years, the Borromeo have made opening the doors of perception to chamber music their principle mission. Their informal public masterclass series held at NEC, "Early Evenings with the Borromeo," regularly attracts standing-room-only crowds. The ensemble is also an artist-in-residence at Dai-Ichi Semei Hall in Tokyo, and return to New Mexico this Summer for a sixth season of mentoring emerging musicians at the famed Taos School of Music.
    The Chicago Tribune calls the Borromeo "a remarkably accomplished string quartet, not simply for its high technical polish and refined tone, but more importantly for the searching musical insights it brings." The San Diego Reader calls their performances "a musical experience of luminous beauty," and the Boston Globe says "Each of the greatest string quartets has redefined what the possibilities of the medium are: through the perfection of its ensemble and intonation, through its poise and its passion, the Borromeos are recreating the medium anew and we are lucky to be here to hear it."
