TOURING PERIOD: November 23-December 6, 2020
The Rosamunde String Quartet was founded in 2015 so that its members could pursue their passion for the string quartet repertoire. Its members include young stars from three of the world’s greatest orchestras: Noah Bendix-Balgley, 1st concertmaster of the Berlin Philharmonic; Shanshan Yao (violin) and Nathan Vickery (cello) of the New York Philharmonic; and Teng Li, principal violist of the Los Angeles Philharmonic. They take time away from their international careers to create music together. Each member is an accomplished soloist and musician, and brings a unique voice to the ensemble. By uniting their experiences, they create a distinctive sound and unanimity of expression.
The musicians of the Rosamunde String Quartet believe their different backgrounds and educational influences enrich their collaboration. They strive for music making that is informed, vibrant, and exciting. Above all, they hugely enjoy sharing their love of chamber music with each other and with audiences. Just listen to their Barber Quartet and you'll see why they've been called a Dream Quartet.
