Quatuor Mosaïques, the most prominent period-instrument quartet performing today, recently completed a North American tour visiting Philadelphia, New York, Vancouver, Berkeley, San Diego, and Stanford, CA. The Austrian group's cohesive ensemble playing has critics talking:
"...the group's ingratiating sound and impeccable interpretive unity gave the sense of a unit that lives and breathes together constantly."
- Steve Smith, The New York Times (Full Article)
"...the group does tap into something well beyond mere notes and rests. No doubt this is what people mean when they talk about music casting a spell...The concentration and subtle sense of continuity that Mosaïques brought to the piece felt like a profound secular prayer."
- David Patrick Stearns, The Philadelphia Inquirer (Full Article)
"The Quatuor Mosaïques offers the best experience that one could hope to have at a string quartet concert. Its members have played together for more than 25 years, so they understand the medium deeply. Their programming provided a satisfying overview of one of the more expressive periods in history of quartets, and their masterful technique on period strings allowed tiny details to bubble up to the surface that might be lost in other groups' performances. This ensemble delivered, with obvious élan, exactly what its name promised"
