“In a scene crowded with excellent young ensembles, the Calidore String Quartet can assert itself with pride, having recently won both a Borletti-Buitoni Trust Fellowship and the M-Prize International Music Competition.” – The New York Times

“…remarkable for the precision of their expression [and] their understated but relentless intensity” – The Los Angeles Times

 “Four highly intelligent, deeply sensitive virtuosos” – Strings Magazine

 “The Calidore players performed…with synergistic brilliance and ferocious commitment…” – The New York Times

“Calidore’s lustrous, beautifully matched sound, meticulous attention to detail, intellectual rigour, and worldly musicianship would be the envy of groups that have been playing together twice as long.” – Ottawa Citizen

 “This dynamic and intelligent ensemble has already demonstrated skill and maturity beyond their collective years, and they show seemingly endless potential.” – David Finckel, Co-director of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center
