The visionary performances of the Borromeo String Quartet have established them as one of the most important string quartets of our time. "To hear and see them perform has always felt to me like taking a private tour through a composer's mind," says Cathy Fuller of WGBH in Boston. "They probe and analyze from every angle until they discover how to best unveil the psychological, physical, and spiritual states that a great piece of music evokes.” Formed in 1989, the Borromeo Quartet performs worldwide and has collaborated with many of the great composers and performers of our time. They have worked extensively with the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center and the Library of Congress and are the longtime ensemble-in-residence at the New England Conservatory of Music and the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum.
The Borromeo are much celebrated for pioneering the use of computer technology to enable each musician to perform from full scores and composer manuscripts, a revealing and transformative experience which has never before been possible.
"A remarkably accomplished string quartet, not simply for its high technical polish and refined tone, but more importantly for the searching musical insights it brings."
