Callisto Quartet at Caramoor on May 2
Titilayo Ayangade

Praised for their “intensity and bravado” and the “cohesion and intonation one might expect from an ensemble twice their age” (Third Coast Review), the Callisto Quartet was formed in 2016 at the Cleveland Institute of Music, and has since garnered top prizes in the 2018 Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition and the 2019 Banff International String Quartet Competition, as well as several others.

For their second performance as Caramoor’s 2020–21 Ernst Stiefel String Quartet-in-Residence, the Callisto completes its season-long survey of Bartók’s string quartets with the composer’s second, third, and fifth quartets.

Immediately following the concert, there will be a Q&A with the Callisto Quartet, with an opportunity for the audience at home to ask questions; moderated by Caramoor’s Artistic Director, Kathy Schuman.
