Stellar talents join forces

Stars-in-the-making, Isidore received the prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant in 2023 and won the Banff International String Competition in 2022. They’ll open their Akron debut with Ravel’s String Quartet in F major and Gabriella Smith’s Carrot Revolution. Then Jeremy Denk — heralded by The New York Times as “a pianist you want to hear no matter where he performs” — joins in for Brahms’ Quintet for Piano and Strings in F minor, Op. 34.

ABOUT ISIDORE STRING QUARTET

If there were an award for the fastest rise in the past decade by a young string quartet after winning a key competition, the Isidore String Quartet would likely win. The quartet was formed in 2019, while its members were still students at New York’s Juilliard School. Following the Covid shutdown, they won the 14th Banff International String Quartet Competition and in January 2023 gave a showcase concert during the annual Chamber Music America conference, where they were heard by an astonished audience that included some of the nation’s leading chamber music presenters. The same year (just last year) the quartet was also awarded the coveted Avery Fisher Career Grant. They have never looked back and barely stopped performing.
