Praised for their “intelligence” and “immensely satisfying” playing by The New York Times, the Amernet String Quartet has garnered recognition as one of today’s exceptional string quartets. Ensemble-in-Residence at Florida International University in Miami, their sound has been called “complex” but with an “old world flavor.” Strad Magazine described the Amernet as “…a group of exceptional technical ability.” Their playing is “fascinating, with flawless intonation, extraordinary beauty of sound, virtuosic brilliance and homogeneity of ensemble.” (Nürnberger Nachrichten).
The Amernet’s performance schedule has taken the quartet across the Americas and to Asia, Europe, and the Middle East. They have collaborated with many of today’s most prominent artists and ensembles. The Amernet won the gold medal at the Tokyo International Music Competition before being named first prize winners of the prestigious Banff International String Quartet Competition. The Amernet actively advocates for neglected works of the past and aims to enliven the concert experience through its innovative programming. The Amernet String Quartet’s current season includes tours throughout Europe and Latin America as well as the premieres of several new works and return engagements throughout the US and Israel.
Recognized as one of today’s world-class string ensembles, the Amernet Quartet will perform String Quartet in D Minor, Op.34 by Antonín Dvorák and two compositions by UT Dallas Chair of Art & Aesthetic Studies, Robert Xavier Rodríguez: Meta 4 and Above All, Women: Four Images of Gustav Klimt for string quartet (world premiere).
