“String quartet nirvana!”
- Santa Fe New Mexican
“We are particularly excited to share Smetana’s masterpiece “From My Life”. It is a powerful example of how music is able to transport us from past to present to future, sometimes breathtakingly in just a split second. In concerts, we strive for a genuine experience for ourselves that we hope transfers out to the audience. It’s not about demonstrating technical skill, but really living in a character. It’s a bit like theater in conveying emotion directly.” -Joel, Bryan, Milena, and Camden
