Fine Arts Quartet - Biography
The Fine Arts Quartet, "one of the gold-plated names in chamber music" (Washington Post), ranks among the most distinguished ensembles of our time, with an illustrious history of performing success and an extensive recording legacy. Founded in Chicago in 1946, and based at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee since 1963, the Quartet is one of the elite few to have recorded and toured internationally for over half a century. Each season, violinists Ralph Evans and Efim Boico (who have been playing together nearly 30 years), violist Nicolò Eugelmi, and cellist Robert Cohen perform worldwide in such cities as New York, London, Paris, Berlin, Rome, Madrid, Moscow, Tokyo, Beijing, Istanbul, Jerusalem, Mexico City, and Toronto.
The Quartet has recorded over 200 works. Their latest releases have received many awards and distinctions, among them: "Gramophone award-winner and recording of legendary status" (2012 Gramophone Classical Music Guide), "Key Recording/Top Recommendation" (2010 Penguin Guide to Recorded Classical Music), and "Editor's Choice", (Gramophone Magazine, 2010).
