The Cassatt String Quartet in Concert
Carriage Barn Concert Series—Fall 2018
OPEN TO THE PUBLIC | The Cassatt String Quartet, one of the finest American string quartets, is celebrated for its performances of contemporary music as well as works from the standard repertoire. The quartet was formed in 1985 to inaugurate Julliard’s Young Artists Quartet Program. Since then, the Cassatt String Quartet ----Muneko Otani and Jennifer Leshnower (violins), Ah Ling Neu (viola), Elizabeth Anderson (cello) -- has performed at New York’s Alice Tully Hall, and Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, Tanglewood Music Theater, the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC, Theatre des Champs-Élysées in Paris, and the Beijing Central Conservatory in China. The Cassatt has been heard on NPR’s Performance Today, Boston’s WGBH, and New York’s WQXR and WNYC. They have 30 recordings, and were named three times to Alex Ross’ 10 best classical recordings of the year in The New Yorker magazine.
