Internationally recognized as one of the world’s foremost quartets, the American String Quartet celebrated its 40th season in 2015–16. Critics and col­leagues hold the quartet in high esteem, and many of today’s leading artists and composers seek out the ensemble for col­lab­o­ra­tions. The American String Quartet is also known for its performances of the complete quartets of Beethoven, Brahms, Schubert, Schoenberg, Bartók, Mendels­sohn, and Mozart, as well as all the string quintets of Mozart, Mendels­sohn, and Brahms. The group’s recordings of the complete Mozart string quartets on a matched set of Stradi­varius instruments are widely held to set the standard for this repertoire.
