Notes & Reviews:

The Parker Quartet is widely known and respected for their inspiring performances, dazzling sound, and remarkable musicianship. The Grammy-Award-winning ensemble was founded in, and is currently based in Boston. The group has a vastly varied repertoire, ranging from classical to contemporary compositions. They have rapidly set themselves apart as one of the most trailblazing ensembles of its generation. The group is sought after worldwide, and appears at prestigious venues across North and South America, Europe, and South Korea. For the Quartet, the music of Felix Mendelssohn is rejuvenating. There is no other composer who can better channel the youthful soul that all of us have inside. This joyful music captures the spirit of life, which the Parker Quartet amplifies with their irresistible energy.
