Praised for their “superb capacity to find the inner heart of everything they play, regardless of era, style, or technical demand” (The International Review of Music), the Tesla Quartet — named for the inventor and futurist Nikola Tesla — brings refinement and prowess to both new and established repertoire. The Tesla Quartet was recently announced as the winner of this year's John Lad prize, presented annually by the St. Lawrence String Quartet to exceptional emerging chamber ensembles.
“Though free to think and act, we are held together, like the stars in the firmament, with ties inseparable. These ties cannot be seen, but we can feel them.” — Nikola Tesla
