Notes and Editorial Reviews

The great inventor and futurist Nikola Tesla, from whom the Tesla Quartet takes its name, talked of the invisible yet inseparable ties which bind people together. Through performance, teaching and outreach, the Tesla Quartet has for ten years strived to tap into this palpable feeling, using music to create meaningful connections with their audiences. Celebrating this first decade together, the quartet’s debut album draws upon the need for reflection, and to look upon the familiar in a new light. None did this more effectively than Igor Stravinsky, two centuries after Haydn pioneered the string quartet, and Ravel’s masterful contribution takes its place as a staple of the repertoire. Praised for their “superb capacity to find the inner heart Read more of everything they play, regardless of the era, style or technical demand” (The International Review of Music) the Tesla Quartet brings refinement and prowess to both new and established repertoire.
