The Tokyo String Quartet has captivated audiences and critics alike. They have collaborated with a remarkable array of artists and composers, built a comprehensive catalog of critically-acclaimed recordings (with Deutsche Grammophon), and established a distinguished teaching record. Officially formed in 1969 at Juilliard, the Tokyo Quartet traces its origins to the Toho School of Music in Tokyo. “… all four players were somehow one instrument being led by a single artistic hand.” Philadelphia Inquirer
