About

The Escher String Quartet returns to the Kennedy Center for a night of Bartók, Brahms, and Beethoven. The group, now in its fifth year, has garnered praise from such luminaries as Pinchas Zukerman and Itzhak Perlman as they continue to display "ripe tonal balances with the kind of heedless intensity that comes with youth" (San Francisco Chronicle). Balancing interweaving solo parts and group harmony, their performances are evocative of graphic artist M.C. Escher, from whom they take their name. The group brings this twisting and turning artistry to a triptych of string quartets from Bartók to Brahms to Beethoven that are linked by their intensity and drama.
