Argus Quartet

 

Argus Quartet
- Concert, July 10, Meet the Artist, August 9, 2018

Praised for their "supreme melodic control and total authority" (Calgary Herald), the Argus Quartet is quickly gaining a reputation as one of today's most dynamic and versatile young ensembles.

Argus is dedicated to reinvigorating the audience-performer relationship through innovative concerts and diverse repertoire – connecting with and building up a community of engaged listeners is at the core of the quartet's mission. The quartet also believes that today's ensembles can honor the storied chamber music traditions of our past while forging a new path forward. In that spirit, their repertoire includes not just staples of the chamber music canon but also a large number of pieces by living composers.

In the fall of 2017, the Argus Quartet began an appointment as the Graduate Quartet in Residence at the Juilliard School, where they work closely with the Juilliard String Quartet – Argus made their Lincoln Center recital debut with a performance at Alice Tully Hall in May of 2018

The Argus Quartet's recent and upcoming performances include appearances at Carnegie Hall's Weill Recital Hall and Zankel Hall, Roulette, the Albany Symphony's American Music Festival, Bang on a Can at the Noguchi Museum, the Hear Now Music Festival, Providence College, the University of Michigan, James Madison University's Contemporary Music Festival, Princeton University, the Shalin Liu Performance Center at Rockport Music, and the Muziekgebouw aan 't IJ in Amsterdam.
