-  Widely known as the quintessential American string quartet, the Juilliard String Quartet was founded in 1946 and has been recognized for the boldness of its interpretation of the classics, with an equal and parallel tradition of championing the new. The Quartet's sound is characterized by clarity of structure, compelling rhythmic drive and a unanimity of purpose, no matter the work at hand. The quartet's members for this performance were Joseph Lin (violin), Ronald Copes (violin), Roger Tapping (viola) and Joel Krosnick (cello).
