Winner of the grand prize at the inaugural M-Prize Chamber Music Competition at the University of Michigan in May, the Calidore String Quartet is “a miracle of unified thought,” (La Presse, Montreal).

The quartet’s palpable energy and intelligent, passionate performances have led to international acclaim. The group formed at the Colburn School in in 2010, taking its name from their home state of California and the French word for “gold,” and counts the Emerson Quartet and violinist Arnold Steinhardt (Guarneri String Quartet) among their mentors. “Calidore’s lustrous, beautifully matched sound, meticulous attention to detail, intellectual rigor, and worldly musicianship would be the envy of groups that have been playing together twice as long.” (Ottawa Citizen)
