The Escher String Quartet from New York has received acclaim for its expressive, nuanced performances that combine unusual textural clarity with a rich, blended sound. A former BBC New Generation Artist, the quartet has performed at the BBC Proms at Cadogan Hall and is a regular guest at Wigmore Hall. In 2013, the quartet became one of the very few chamber ensembles to be awarded the prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant. This evening, they inspire us to use our imagination through the atmospheric and nationalistic tinted masterpieces of Benjamin Britten, Dmitri Shostakovich and Antonín Dvořák.
