    Borromeo String Quartet

     Considered "simply the best there is" by The Boston Globe, the critically-acclaimed Borromeo String Quartet is one of the most sought after string quartets in the world. Audiences and critics alike champion their affinity for making even the most challenging contemporary repertoire approachable and enlightening. They perform at the world’s most illustrious concert halls and music festivals, and continue long-standing residencies at the Isabella Stuart Gardner Museum and the prestigious New England Conservatory of Music, where it has been the official Quartet-in-Residence for nearly 20 years. 


    Among the numerous awards Borromeo has won are Lincoln Center’s Martin E. Segal Award; Chamber Music America’s Cleveland Quartet Award; top prize at the International String Quartet Competition; and the Avery Fisher Career Grant. The prestigious Aaron Copland House created the Borromeo Quartet Award in 2006, an annual initiative that will premiere the work of important young composers to audiences internationally.  The Quartet has been members of Lincoln Center’s Chamber Music Society Two and served as Ensemble-in-Residence for National Public Radio’s Performance Today.

     

    "… the Borromeo offered an afternoon of edge-of-the-seat music-making that grappled palpably with the composer’s dark haunting visions in the process of bringing them to life."
