Edmonton Summer Solstice Festival, June 2016

"FINE ARTS QUARTET: HIGHLIGHT OF SUCCESSFUL SUMMER SOLSTICE FESTIVAL (headline)...Central to the week has been the Fine Arts Quartet...[which] is celebrating its 70th anniversary this year, and its current personal have continued the hallmarks that have made them one of the world’s finest quartets...At the heart of their sound is a gloriously rich and resonant glow, difficult to describe, except by analogy — the depth of a vintage red wine, perhaps, or the glow of polished mahogany. It’s created by tone, by shared understanding, and by subtleties of phrasing. Every string quartet strives for it; only the best ones succeed, and few as well as the Fine Arts."
