Hailed by The New York Times as an “outstanding ensemble of young musicians,” the Verona Quartet is dedicated to showcasing the art of the string quartet and to elevating their music to convey the poetic narrative of storytelling. The quartet’s four members on violins, viola, and cello approach their performances with both musical and cultural cooperation that has earned the group a reputation for its “interpretive strength . . . robust characterization (and) commanding resonance” (Calgary Herald).
The 2017 Cliburn bronze medalist, pianist Daniel Hsu, has been characterized by The Philadelphia Inquirer as a “poet with an expressive edge to his playing that charms, questions, and coaxes.” Additionally, Hsu was a 2016 Gilmore Young Artist, first prize winner of the 2015 CAG Victor Elmaleh Competition, and a bronze medalist at the 2015 Hamamatsu International Piano Competition. He is increasingly recognized for his easy virtuosity and bold musicianship.
