Praised for their “vibrant performance” and “sincere expressivity,” Thalea String Quartet is one of San Francisco’s latest and most exciting up and coming string quartets. Formed in 2014 at the Zephyr International Chamber Music Festival in Courmayeur, Italy, the Thalea String Quartet has performed recitals in Italy, the United States, and Canada, and was recently appointed as the first quartet-in-residence at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. They were named one of the “Top 10 Bay Area Quartets You Should Know” by CultureTrip.com and have been described as “having the potential to be one of the finest [quartets] of its generation” by the Calgary Herald. The quartet has worked with members of the Juilliard Quartet, Alexander Quartet and Kronos Quartet. During their residency at The Banff Centre in June 2015, they worked with Gilbert Kalish, Alasdair Tait, and Mark Steinberg.
