Praised for its supreme technical command and interpretative subtleties, this much-admired quartet plays with a mix of warmth, elegance, and poetry that makes each of its concerts an unforgettable experience. Displaying "marvelous tonal palettes, resourceful dynamics, and musical single-mindedness" (The Los Angeles Times), the Johannes brings together four outstanding musicians with a passion for the string quartet literature: Soovin Kim, the first American to win the Paganini Violin Competition in 24 years; Catherine Cho, an Avery Fisher Career Grant winner; Choong-Jin Chang, the associate principal viola of the Philadelphia Orchestra; and Peter Stumpf, the principal cellist of the Los Angeles Philharmonic. For its Washington debut, the Johannes performs three string quartets by Mozart, Webern, and Brahms.
