Recognized for its virtuosity and exuberant performance style, the Grammy Award-winning
Pacifica Quartet was Musical America’s 2009 Ensemble of the Year. Shortly after its 1994
formation, the Pacifica won the coveted Naumburg Prize, and has since received many honors. Recently, the Quartet presented the monumental Shostakovich cycle in Chicago and New York and the complete Beethoven cycle at Tokyo’s Suntory Hall in an unprecedented presentation of five concerts in three days. This past season, they performed the Shostakovich cycle at London’s Wigmore Hall and the Beethoven cycle at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. No hyperbole intended: they are simply one of the world’s best chamber music ensembles performing today. On the Lane Series, they will play Haydn’s Quartet in B-flat Major, Op. 76, No. 4, “Sunrise”; Shostakovich’s Quartet No. 2; and Beethoven’s Quartet in A minor, Op. 132.
