Founded in 2002, the Parker Quartet won many awards, including the Bordeaux competition, Chamber Music America’s prestigious Cleveland Quartet Award in 2009, and the chamber music Grammy in 2011. They played for us in April 2014 with Kikuei Ikeda of our beloved Tokyo Quartet. The quartet is in its seventh year as faculty members of Harvard University’s Department of Music in the group’s role as Blodgett Artists-in-Residence. The quartet’s playing is known for its polish, energy and commitment.
