Internationally recognized as one of the world’s foremost quartets, the American String Quartet celebrated its 40th season in 2015–16. Critics and colleagues hold the quartet in high esteem, and many of today’s leading artists and composers seek out the ensemble for collaborations. The American String Quartet is also known for its performances of the complete quartets of Beethoven, Brahms, Schubert, Schoenberg, Bartók, Mendelssohn, and Mozart, as well as all the string quintets of Mozart, Mendelssohn, and Brahms. The group’s recordings of the complete Mozart string quartets on a matched set of Stradivarius instruments are widely held to set the standard for this repertoire.
