Escher String Quartet
Within months of its inception in 2005, the Escher String Quartet was invited by both Pinchas Zukerman and Itzhak Perlman to be the quartet-in-residence at each artist’s summer festival: The Young Artists Programme at Canada’s National Arts Centre and The Perlman Chamber Music Program on Shelter Island, NY. http://escherquartet.com/
“Escher [Quartet] made clear that it is now one of the top young quartets before the public today … This is a group to watch.” — Washington Post
Initially brought to global attention in June 1997 by being named Gold Medalist of the Tenth Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, Jon Nakamatsu enjoys a continuously expanding career based on a deeply probing and illuminating musicality as well as a quietly charismatic performing style.
“His playing takes on a truly magical, communing ease and finesse … Nakamatsu’s brilliantly engaged performance paints a portrait of a remarkably wide-ranging and stylish artist.” – Gramophone
