Formed in 2003, the Modigliani Quartet performs regularly at the world’s top chamber music venues, touring America, Japan, Korea, China and European countries. In 2017, they made their Berliner Philharmonie debut and returned to London’s Wigmore Hall, New York’s Carnegie Hall, the Paris Philharmonie, Vienna’s Konzerthaus, Salzburg’s Mozarteum, Philadelphia’s Kimmel Center, and Tokyo’s Oji Hall. In 2014, the Quartet became Artistic Directors of the Rencontres Musicales d’Evian, created in 1976 by Antoine Riboud and made famous by its former artistic director, Mstislav Rostropovich.

The quartet first recorded in 2008 and has released 8 CDs, all internationally acclaimed. Its latest, Schumann’s Op. 41 String Quartets, was issued in November 2017. Their program for this Music in the Park Series debut features Stravinsky’s Three Pieces for String Quartet, Haydn’s Quartet in D Minor “Fifths,” and Tchaikovsky’s Quartet No. 3 in E-flat minor.
