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.
