Quartet San Francisco
Quartet San Francisco’s last four CDs (2013, 2009, 2007, and 2006) have gathered three Grammy® nominations for Best Classical Crossover; three for Best Engineered, Classical (Leslie Ann Jones and Judy Kirchner); and two for Best Instrumental Composition (Gordon Goodwin and Vince Mendoza). In 2004 the group won the Argentine Consulate’s International Tango Competition in New York City.
Founded in 2001 by violinist and composer Jeremy Cohen, QSF expresses itself in its agility and standout virtuosic playing. These crossover specialists excel in multiple styles — from jazz to tango, pop to funk, blues to bluegrass, gypsy swing to big band and beyond.
Since its concert debut in 2001, Quartet San Francisco has offered its groundbreaking literature to local, national and international audiences in performing arts centers, tango and concert halls, jazz festivals, museums, and classrooms across the US, Italy, China, South Korea, and Japan.
