THE PUCK QUARTET
The Puck Quartet, drawing inspiration from their mischievous Shakespearean namesake, seeks to bring a capricious spirit and evocative language to music. They share a passion and sense of humor in their approach to chamber music.
In 2018, the Puck Quartet gave the New York premiere of Stephen Prutsmans score to The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari in a sold-out performance at the Baryshnikov Arts Center. The quartet gave the inaugural concert of the Garth Newel Emerging Artist series in western Virginia, and returned for a second season to the Rhinebeck Chamber Music Society in Rhinebeck, New York. The quartet was one of four quartets hand-picked by Robert Mann to participate in the Robert Mann String Quartet Institute at the Manhattan School of Music. In 2014, supported by an award from the Marx Family Foundation, Puck gave the world premiere performance of Ascension, a new work by composer Jason Eckardt.
The Puck Quartet is equally committed to bringing the highest quality performances to community audiences beyond the concert hall setting. For instance, while participating in the 2017 Ensemble Connect Audience Engagement Institute at Carnegie Hall, Puck worked closely with members of the Decoda Ensemble to develop an interactive performance, which they brought to various community centers in Queens. The group is happy to offer special concerts for families with autism and related challenges to Azure concerts organized by the St. Lawrence String Quartet at Stanford University, and a concert series organized through Our Joyful Noise in Baltimore.
