" Their delivery is relaxed and perfectly natural, creating a soundscape that the audience beheld in breathless silence. They seem to love their instruments, rather than forcing them or tearing them up. But make no mistake, this simplicity of utterance conveys a complete, complex, and powerful message. The grateful audience left enriched and, I suspect, a little more human than it arrived. The Calidore Quartet is something else."
Boston Music Intelligencer (December 3, 2017):
“Despite the high-set bar, the Calidore String Quartet managed to exceed expectations…In this opportunity to stun a packed house of connoisseurs or bore them, the Calidore forcefully stuck to the former. Rarely does a young prize-winning group make such a mature and deep impression. I left the Gardner with my jaw agape. The Calidore plays with flawless ensemble. The care with which each member matches pitch, sound quality, vibrato, and a sense of phrase, sounded far more rehearsed, familiar, and natural than befits a seven-year-old ensemble…I look forward to seeing what this great young ensemble brings next to Boston. The Gardner should be sure they book their flights.”
