"Fearless, yet probingly beautiful"—The Strad

The Grammy Award-winning Parker Quartet has rapidly distinguished itself as one of the preeminent ensembles of its generation. The quartet’s numerous honors include winning the Concert Artists Guild Competition, the Grand Prix and Mozart Prize at France’s Bordeaux International String Quartet Competition, and Chamber Music America’s Cleveland Quartet Award. Recent seasons included performances throughout the United States and Europe, with engagements at Wigmore Hall, Konzerthaus Berlin, the Philadelphia Chamber Music Society, Strathmore, and the San Antonio Chamber Music Society. The quartet is committed to working with composers of today, with recent commissions including works by Augusta Read Thomas, Felipe Lara, Jaehyuck Choi, and Zosha di Castri. In the 2022-23 season, the Quartet marked their 20th anniversary with The Beethoven Project, a multi-faceted initiative which includes performances of the complete cycle of Beethoven’s string quartets; the commissioning of six composers to write encores inspired by Beethoven’s quartets; the creation of a new video library spotlighting each Beethoven quartet; and bringing Beethoven’s music to non-traditional venues around the quartet’s home base of Boston, including homeless shelters and youth programs.
