In nearly 20 years on the concert stage, the four members of the San Francisco-based Cypress String Quartet (CSQ) have played thousands of concerts together throughout North America, Europe, Asia and Latin America. Praised by Gramophone for their “artistry of uncommon insight and cohesion,” and by the NY Times for “tender, deeply expressive” interpretations, they have recorded over 15 albums and are played regularly on hundreds of radio stations throughout the world. They have also been heard on the Netflix original series “House of Cards” and have collaborated with leading artists ranging from Michael Franti of Spearhead to modern dance companies.
“This young quartet is among the most impressive I have heard in modern sound “
– Stereophile (reviewing CSQ’s “Beethoven: The Late String Quartets”)
