The Escher String Quartet has received acclaim for its expressive, nuanced performances that combine unusual textural clarity with a rich, blended sound. Making their Toronto debut, TSM is delighted to confirm that the Escher String Quartet will now open the 2018 Toronto Summer Music Festival on July 12 at Koerner Hall. The program includes Schumann’s String Quartet No. 1, Shostakovich’s String Quartet No. 9 in E-flat major, Op.117, and Tchaikovsky’s String Quartet No.1 in D Major, Op. 11

“…a level of individual technical precision and a collective musical purpose that is endlessly compelling…Sheer brilliance.”
