     Bio:

Argus Quartet
The Argus Quartet's "vivacious foursome" (The New Yorker) is committed to bringing thoughtful and personal programs to both seasoned listeners and audiences new to classical music. The Quartet enjoys projects that celebrate collaboration, community, and risk-taking in venues of all shapes and sizes. Praised for playing with "supreme melodic control and total authority" and "decided dramatic impact" (Calgary Herald), Argus has quickly emerged as one of today's most dynamic and versatile ensembles. Formed in Los Angeles in 2013, the Quartet has performed in some of the country's most prestigious venues and festivals, including Lincoln Center's Alice Tully Hall, Chamber Music Society of Detroit, the Ravinia Festival, the Albany Symphony's American Music Festival, and Music Academy of the West. In 2017, Argus won First Prize at both the M-Prize Chamber Arts Competition and the Concert Artists Guild Victor Elmaleh Competition. Highlights of their 2022-23 concert season include two appearances at Carnegie Hall, a return to Columbia University's Miller Theatre for its Pop-Up Concerts series, the beginning of a multi-year recording project of the string quartets of Donald Crockett, and the launch of a new program consisting of works by Indigenous composers. This program will feature a new composition by Pulitzer Prize finalist Anne Leilehua Lanzilotti, commissioned as a National Performance Network Creation & Development Fund Project. The Quartet will premiere the program in San Diego, Long Beach, and Denver in spring 2023. You can watch Argus Quartet in a brief season preview video here with clips of all the musicians performing in our 27th season.
