Escher String Quartet
The Escher String Quartet draws inspiration from the art of M.C. Escher, where individual components work together to form a whole. Founded in 2005, the Quartet took the musical world by storm, becoming quartet-in-residence at The perlman Chamber Music Program in New York and The Young Artist Programme in Canada. Since then, the former BBC New Generation Artists have performed worldwide, from New York's Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center to The Louvre in Paris and Hangzhou Grand Theatre in China.
