The Calder Quartet, called “outstanding” and “superb” by the New York Times, performs at an exceptional level, always striving to channel and fulfill the composer’s vision. Already the choice of many leading composers to perform their works— including Christopher Rouse, Terry Riley, and Thomas Adès—the group’s distinctive approach is exemplified by a musical curiosity brought to everything they perform, whether it’s Beethoven, Mozart, Haydn, or sold-out rock shows with bands like The National or The Airborne Toxic Event. Winners of the 2014 Avery Fisher Career Grant, they are known for the discovery, commissioning, recording and mentoring of some of today’s best emerging composers (over 25 commissioned works to date). Recent season highlights include debuts at New York’s Mostly Mozart Festival, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, London’s Wigmore Hall, the Barbican Festival and the Edinburgh International Festival. calderquartet.com
