I have travelled extensively in and outside of the United States and discussed music with countless musicians and others with an enthusiasm for the chamber music genre.  I can easily say that when speaking of the top performers in our genre over the last three decades, the Quartetto di Venezia and each of its members are frequently cited as among the most respected and recognized performers internationally for their extraordinary ability and mastery, as evidenced in their world-wide tours, recordings and residencies.  I wholeheartedly have and share that opinion.  The QdV offers audiences a significant opportunity to hear the greatest music performed at the highest level of achievement.  The recent success of the QdV’s complete Beethoven quartet cycle at the splendid new Auditorium “Lo Squero” in Venice reaffirms the ensemble’s reputation and acclaim.
