About This Performance

Heralded as “the epitome of confidence and finesse” (Gramophone Magazine) and “a miracle of unified thought” (La Presse), the Calidore Quartet received well-deserved headlines last year as the Grand Prize winner of the inaugural M-Prize International Chamber Music Competition. Protégés of the Emerson Quartet, the Calidore recently began a three year residency with the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center Two. Its PCMS debut program illuminates two works by Caroline Shaw, the Pulitzer Prize winner whose music is described by the New York Times as “exhilarating, sensual and playful.”
