About the Artist

Hear the fugal virtuosity of composers from Haydn to Beethoven to GRAMMY-nominated composer Anna Clyne, whose latest work was co-commissioned by PUC and fellow presenters around the country. Through this interconnected program, we will watch time unfold in the hands of performers who have also grown before our eyes. Having made their PUC debut alongside the Emerson String Quartet in 2015, the Calidore String Quartet recently made international headlines as the winners of the inaugural M-Prize, the world’s largest chamber music prize.  It is a thrill to welcome them back for their mainstage debut.
