Formed in 2005, the youthful Escher Quartet has already made a splash on both sides of the Atlantic. Once resident artists at Lincoln Center’s “Chamber Music Society Two,” they were named BBC’s New Generation Artists from 2010-2012. In the meantime, they’ve attracted the attention of some the world’s finest musicians. Championed by the Emerson Quartet’s David Finckel and Lawrence Dutton, they’ve performed with Pinchas Zukerman, Leon Fleisher, and many others.
