The Ysaye Quartet Makes Its Final Concert Tour

January 15th, 2014 · 4 Comments


It is truly the end of an era for one of the world’s leading string quartets as they present their final performances in Europe this month. The Ysaye Quartet, led by UCLA’s own Guillaume Sutre will bring their monumental journey to a close as a quartet this season. We wish them the very best both for their current performances and in their future artistic endeavors.

Professor Sutre states: “the last concert, celebrating 30 years of the Ysaye Quartet’s existence, will feature works we often played and recorded, like the Beethoven Op. 135, Schoenberg Verklärte Nacht that are also part of our 2 last CDs released in 2013”.
