"It's not often one comes across an ensemble of stellar young musicians like these who shine individually but also play together so beautifully," says Daniel Jordan, director of artist programs for Artist Series Concerts. "Be it on violin, viola, cello, flute, oboe, clarinet, double bass or bassoon, theirs is an individual and collective brilliance that is not to be missed."
