The Parker Quartet - The New York Times captures the essence of The Parker Quartet, extolling that “passages that demand ensemble precision were flawlessly balanced, perfectly tuned and sheathed in lustrous textures.” This brilliant, youthful string quartet won the Grammy for Best Chamber Music Performance in 2011 and now brings its brilliance to the intimate stage of the Downtown Concert Series.
