The Enso String Quartet
Founded at Yale University in 1999, the Enso String Quartet has, in a decade and a half, risen to the front rank of string ensembles. Described by “Strad” magazine as “thrilling” and praised by the Washington Post for it’s “glorious sonorities”, the Enso has won numerous awards, including top prizes at the Concert Artist Guild competition and the Banff International String Quartet Competition. In the words of ‘Classical Voice, it is “ one of the eminent string quartets of our era”.In praising the Enso’s Grammy nominated album of works by Alberto Ginastera, the reviewer for MusicWeb International declared, “The performances here by the Enso Quartet from America are quite staggeringly brilliant. I don’t think I have been so thrilled by the sound of a string Quartet in a long time…if I could give this disc a standing ovation of one…I would!”
