See and Hear the Linden String Quartet

Described as “truly riveting” by MusicWeb International, the Linden String Quartet is a winner of the Concert Artists Guild Victor Elmaleh Competition in 2010. Founded in Spring 2008, the quartet has enjoyed remarkable success in three years, winning the gold medal and grand prize of the Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition and the Coleman-Barstow Prize at the Coleman National Chamber Ensemble Competition in 2009, first prize at the Hugo Kauder Competition in 2010, and the ProQuartet Prize at the Ninth Borciani International String Quartet Competition.

Praised for its “remarkable depth of technique and brilliantly nuanced, sumptuous tonality...delivered with a palpable, infectious joy” (MusicWeb International), the Linden Quartet is currently the Graduate String-Quartet-in-Residence at Yale University, where the musicians are mentored by the Tokyo String Quartet. In 2011, they were granted for the prestigious A.N. and Pearl G. Barnett Fellowship.

Founded in 1957, the Schneider Concerts chamber music series is praised as being “one of the best deals in town for lovers of classical music” by the New York Times. The series has presented many of the world’s chamber music notables before their rise to fame: Peter Serkin, the Guarneri String Quartet, and Tashi made their New York debuts in Schneider Concerts, and Yefim Bronfman, Yo-Yo Ma, and Murray Perahia performed in the series early in their careers.
