"One of America's most satisfying - and most enterprising - quartets."
-Los Angeles Times
Our very own Broad Stage Artists-in-Residence continue their rapturous, multi-year Beethoven String Quartet cycle. This inventive and passionate quartet explores the profound beauty of Beethoven's String Quartets paired with exquisite classical and contemporary works. The new works are all commissioned for this series, inspired by the Op 59. quartets and themes of patronage in the past and in the present, to create concerts full of beauty.

The Calder Quartet residency at The Broad Stage has been made possible in part by a generous grant from the Colburn Foundation.
