About

The renowned Guarneri String Quartet has circled the globe countless times since it was formed in 1964, playing in the world's most prestigious halls in North and South America, Mexico, Europe, Asia and Australia. This most distinguished and honored of ensembles plays only one concert in the city of Washington each season, and it is at the Kennedy Center. Elsewhere, the Boston Herald’s Keith Powers has declared, “This generation of music lovers has much to be thankful for. Some proof? The Guarneri String Quartet’s performance!” The Syracuse Post-Standard’s constituency agrees: “The Friends of Chamber Music crowd, who rarely give standing ovations, gave Guarneri an immediate and long ovation at the conclusion of the performance.”
