February 19: Telegraph Quartet

Eric Chin and Joseph Maile (violins), Pei-Ling Lin(viola), and Jeremiah Shaw (cello) perform Haydn: Quartet in C major, Opus 33, “The Bird,” and Schumann: Quartet No. 3 in A major, Opus 41, No. 3.

The Telegraph Quartet recently won the 2016 Naumburg Chamber Music Competition, a prize that helped launch the careers of groups including the Pacifica, Brentano and Emerson string quartets and the Eroica Trio. The prize carries with it a performance at Carnegie Hall / Weill Recital Hall and a commissioned work by esteemed American composer Robert Sirota.

The quartet also won the prestigious Grand Prize in the 2014 Fischoff Chamber Music Competition after playing together for less than a year. They were the only American quartet of the fifteen from around the world invited to showcase at the 2016 Paris Biennale de quatuors à cordes (Biennial String Quartet Festival and Symposium).
