“Executed as by the unfailing hands of surgeons, over the course of the evening, the Juilliard String Quartet performed with barely containable ardor—that at moments impelled their bodies to rise upward from the benches and chairs they sat upon—displaying unparalleled artistry, effortlessly laying claim to a shared sovereignty as one of the world’s finest.”
– Xavier Omar Otero, Tucson Weekly, Dec. 11, 2018
“This evening with the Juilliard String Quartet clearly showed that in traditional programs, music played at the highest level can be its own draw.”
– David Kulma, Cleveland Classical, Dec. 10, 2018
