The Vega String Quartet
June 28, 2013
Quartet in Residence at Emory University, the Vega String Quartet is on the cutting edge of the new generation of chamber music ensembles. After their Lincoln Center debut in 2001, the New York Times raved about their "playing that had a kind of clean intoxication to it, pulling the listener along...the musicians took real risks in their music making..."
“…A single-minded and relentless concentration that gives sweep and perspective to the music at hand…mechanical superiority and a compelling sense of authority…It glowed with musicality and balance…from fragile delicacy to virile aggression and eloquent songfulness…” The Los Angeles Times
