Composers

Notes & Reviews:

Hailed by the New York Concert Review for its "excellent music making...uncommonly fine interpretation," the Serafin String Quartet debuted to a sell-out crowd at New York City's Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall in 2004. The Quartet has consistently received superlatives in the press and ovations. New York Concert Review has lauded the quartet for "ensemble and intonation ... above reproach," and described their Puccini as "suave and stylish!" their Debussy as "a shapely, finely conceived account" and their Haydn as having "rhythmic vitality and taut ensemble..." Since its founding, Serafin String Quartet has been applauded by audiences around the nation, including several sell-out crowds at repeat performances in New York City's Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall. Reflecting their egalitarian viewpoint, Serafin String Quartet violinists share equally the responsibility for playing the first and second violin parts. Serafin String Quartet takes its name from master violin maker, Sanctus Serafin.
