    Calder Quartet with John Bruce Yeh, Clarinet and David Deveau, piano

    Calder Quartet

    Hailed by the New York Times as “outstanding…superb,” the Calder Quartet defies boundaries through performing a broad range of repertoire and always striving to communicate the true intention of the composer.  The group’s distinctive approach and musical curiosity has brought them recognition for the discovery, commissioning, and recording of some of today’s best emerging composers, including Thomas Adès, Terry Riley, and Christopher Rouse. 


    John Bruce Yeh

    A prize-winner at the 1982 Munich International Music Competition and the 1985 Naumburg Clarinet Competition, Yeh is director of the Grammy® Award winning ensemble Chicago Pro Musica.  At age 19, Yeh was appointed by Georg Solti to the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and is currently Assistant Principal Clarinetist, as well as longest-serving clarinetist in CSO history.  He recently formed Birds and Phoenix, an innovative quartet dedicated to bridging Eastern and Western musical cultures through musical exploration.  “…the passage from one note to another was absolutely, stunningly smooth…”  Boston Musical Intelligencer


    David Deveau

    David Deveau is an avid chamber musician internationally acclaimed for his expressive and poetic interpretations.  Having performed with members of the Juilliard, Borromeo, Kronos, Orion, and St. Lawrence string quartets, as well as many others, he has also performed numerous premieres of composers such as John Harbison and Scott Wheeler.
