Artaria String Quartet
Described as an exceptional ensemble with impressive confidence in its interpretations and Minnesota's foremost teaching and performing string quartet, the Artaria String Quartet recently celebrated its 30 year of chamber music concerts. Artaria's refined and thoughtful playing has brought them to major venues throughout the United States and Europe, on national television and public radio stations, and at top summer festivals.
Artaria has earned numerous awards from the National Endowment for the Arts, Chamber Music America, and the Minnesota State Arts Board for excellence in performance and educational outreach. Directors of the Artaria Chamber Music School, a premiere weekly string chamber music program in Saint Paul; and Stringwood Chamber Music Festival, featuring the ASQ and renowned guest artists every June in Lanesboro, MN; they are founders of the Saint Paul String Quartet Competition, which showcases the nations top high school age string quartets each April.
They are currently presenting the cycle of string quartets of Beethoven, to which they give, in the words of one reviewer, a magnificent and vital interpretation though the outlines and flow were quite familiar, it was like hearing the piece (Beethovens Quartet No. 8 in E Minor) for the very first time.
Join us for their all-Beethoven program of three string quartets celebrating the master's 250th birthday!
