Washington, D.C.

"Last weekend, the latter venue [the National Gallery of Art]...hosted an exquisite concert by the Fine Arts Quartet in front of a full house...The Fine Arts Quartet’s gentle use of vibrato and carefully synchronized bow control was well suited to the wet acoustic of the West Garden Court. Furthermore, their statuesque demeanor allowed the music to flow through the performers as vessels. The people listening most intently in the room last Sunday were indeed the performers, whose intonation, tempos (fast notes never seemed fast) and ensemble were on par with the about-to-retire Guarneri Quartet...We hope to see the Fine Arts Quartet in the Washington area more frequently."
