Acclaimed as a “World-Class String Quartet” by the Palm Beach Post, the Delray String Quartet has clearly established itself as one of the cultural jewels of South Florida. Performing regularly across the region, the Delray String Quartet has been described by the press as “well-balanced and elegant,” “adding luster to the South Florida music scene,” “with the players ripping into the music with savage abandon.” A string quartet concert becomes “a stirring experience in the hands of the Delray musicians.” The quartet explores a variety of genres and time periods, including some of the latest quartets. Their recording of Kenneth Fuchs’s Quartet No. 5 for the Naxos label was released in 2013, garnering excellent reviews and being chosen as a Critics’ Choice. Their latest recording on the Centaur label will be released in late 2014. The 2014-2015 season marks the 11th year for the Delrays, with performances scheduled throughout South Florida, their New York City debut, a world premiere commission and an ambitious recording project of the late quartets of American composer Richard Danielpour.
