The Calidore String Quartet has been called “astonishing” by The Los Angeles Times, and praised for its “deep reserves of virtuosity and irrepressible dramatic instinct” by the New York Times. Founded at the Colburn School in Los Angeles in 2010, the award-winning group has quickly become one of today’s premiere chamber ensembles. The group’s name, an amalgamation of of “California” and “doré” (French for “golden”), represents its reverence for the diversity of culture and the strong support it received from its original home: Los Angeles, California, the “golden state.”
