Made up of established chamber musicians who reunited after a long separation, QuartetES brings a diverse and engaging presence to the concert stage. Since 2017 they have been in residence at Point CounterPoint Chamber Music in Vermont. 2018 saw their debut international performance at Harpa Concert Hall in Reykjavik, Iceland. In 2019 they were in residence at the Harpa International Music Academy as well as New Music for Strings in Reykjavik. In 2021 they embarked on an ambitious project for The Uncertainty of Fate Festival: they commissioned 18 pieces by established as well as emerging composers, which they recorded over 4 days during the pandemic. Upcoming projects include their Lincoln's Symphony debut, performing Jessie Montgomery's "Banner" for Quartet and Orchestra in October 2021, and the world premiere of Robert Carl's Quartet No. 3.
