Since its inception in 1946, the Juilliard String Quartet has embodied the credo stated by founders Robert Mann and William Schuman to "play new works as if they were established masterpieces, and established masterpieces as if they were new." The hallmarks of its distinctive sound--clarity of structure, beauty of sound, purity of line and an extraordinary unanimity of purpose--have been applied to virtually every era and genre in the literature. The Los Angeles Times writes: "The Juilliard String Quartet remains the standard by which all other quartets must be judged." The quartet is a member of the National Academy Recording Arts and Sciences' Hall of Fame. Program: Mozart: String Quartet No. 21 in D Major, K. 575; Carter: String Quartet No. 5; and Beethoven: String Quartet No. 14 in C-sharp minor, Op. 131 SF State's Morrison Chamber Music Center presents the Morrison Artists Series, the longest running chamber music concert series in San Francisco, featuring superb, admission-free performances by some of the world's most acclaimed ensembles since 1955.
