Terra String Quartet
The Terra String Quartet, formerly known as the Arte String Quartet, is a vibrant young ensemble based in New York City composed of graduates of the Juilliard School’s prestigious Honors Program and of the Manhattan School of Music. Hailing from five continents, these four musicians share a vision that chamber music embodies both intellectual and emotional vitality.
Members of the quartet have performed around the world at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts and Carnegie Hall in New York City, The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C., Central Conservatory of Music in Beijing, China, Théâtre des Champs-Élysées in Paris, France, Lotte Concert Hall in Seoul, South Korea, Daegu Concert House in Daegu, South Korea, and Vienna Musikverein in Vienna, Austria, among others. They have played alongside such musicians as Robert McDonald, Ida Kavafian, Natasha Brofsky, Anthony Marwood, Augustin Dumay, Gary Hoffman, and Laurence Lesser. They have also attended music festivals including the Ravinia Steans Young Artist Program, Yellow Barn, Music@Menlo, Norfolk Chamber Music Festival, Prussia Cove, and the Seiji Ozawa International Academy.
TSQ has performed at The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Alice Tully Hall as part of Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts’s “Wednesdays at One” series, performing the Schubert Cello Quintet with Natasha Brofsky, and as part of the Four Seasons Chamber Music Festival’s Winter Workshop in North Carolina, where they performed with Robert McDonald, and its members have studied under the guidance of Misha Amory, Daniel Avshalamov, Natasha Brofsky, Catherine Cho, and Joseph Lin.
They are honored to be Si-Yo Music Foundation Artists through which they were able to collaborate in concert with the Quartetto di Cremona in Fall 2021.
In december 2021, the Terra String Quartet has been selected to join Le Dimore del Quartetto Network.
Le Dimore del Quartetto
Le Dimore del Quartetto (go to website to learn more +)is a creative cultural enterprise that supports young international string quartets and chamber music ensembles in launching their careers and enhances European cultural heritage, in a circular economy.
Born in 2015 from an idea of Francesca Moncada, Le Dimore del Quartetto develops from a simple exchange: on the eve of an artistic engagement, musicians are hosted free of charge in a mansion for up to a week and, in return, they offer a concert to the owners during their residency period. In this circular economy, the residences become a precious resource for the quartets and vice versa: opportunities to meet in unusual places and often decentralized territories are created, bringing back to life spaces that are not fully used and bringing a new audience to chamber music.
Today, Le Dimore del Quartetto, counts the participation of 91 chamber music ensembles (string quartets and trios, and with piano) with musicians from 41 different countries, 280 historical residences in 17 countries.
With a consolidated network in the field of music and cultural heritage, it deals with projects through the organization of festivals and travel itineraries, masterclasses, master classes and training courses for musicians, educational projects for associations, schools and universities, training and team-building activities for companies, residencies and concerts in historic houses and other places of cultural interest.
