The Ulysses Quartet
Wednesday, January 11, 2023 | 2 p.m.
The Ulysses Quartet has been praised for their “textural versatility,” “grave beauty” and “the kind of chemistry many quartets long for, but rarely achieve” (The Strad), as well as their “avid enthusiasm ... [with] chops to back up their passion” (San Diego Story),
“delivered with a blend of exuberance and polished artistry” (The Buffalo News). At Juilliard, they are the Lisa Arnhold Fellows, serving as the School’s Graduate
Resident String Quartet.

Praised for their "fresh and surprising interpretations," the award-winning Merz Trio are known for their passionate playing and uniquely artistic programming style, interspersing classic trio works with interdisciplinary elements and their own arrangements.
The Trio have made a sweep of recent US chamber awards, taking top prizes at the 2021 Naumburg, 2019 Concert Artists Guild, 2019 Fischoff, and 2018 Chesapeake Competitions. Recent debut appearances include performances at NYC’s Merkin Hall, Boston’s Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, and the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam.

The Telegraph Quartet (Eric Chin and Joseph Maile, violins; Pei-Ling Lin, viola; Jeremiah Shaw, cello) formed in 2013 with an equal passion for the standard chamber music repertoire and contemporary, non-standard works alike.
Described by the San Francisco Chronicle as “…an incredibly valuable addition to the cultural landscape” and “powerfully adept… with a combination of brilliance and subtlety,” the Telegraph Quartet was awarded the prestigious 2016 Walter W. Naumburg Chamber Music Award and the Grand Prize at the 2014 Fischoff Chamber Music Competition.
Wednesday, March 15 2023 | 2 p.m.
The Balourdet Quartet, based in Boston, is currently in residence at the New England Conservatory’s Professional String Quartet Program.
The quartet received the Grand Prize at the 2021 Concert Artists Guild Victor Elmaleh Competition as well as the top prize awarded in the 2021 Premio Paolo Borciani in Reggio Emilia, Italy. The group received the Gold Medal in the 2020 Fischoff National Chamber Competition, the Gold Medal and Audience Award at the 2021 Chamber Yellow Springs Competition, and the Second Prize in the 2019 Carl Nielsen International Chamber Competition.
