Event Details

Diderot String Quartet – named after the eighteenth-century French philosopher and Boccherini enthusiast Denis Diderot—brings a fresh approach to works of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Diderot came together in 2012 after having first met at Oberlin Conservatory and The Juilliard School. The four musicians share a background in historical performance and a passion for the string quartet genre; they found the thrill of exploring the quartet repertoire on period instruments to be irresistible.

Diderot String Quartet has served as guest faculty for Oberlin’s Baroque Performance Institute, and been in residence at Aldeburgh Music in the U.K and Holy Trinity Lutheran Church (New York City), and has performed at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Toledo Museum of Art and Carmel Bach Festival. Other notable events include the recent premiere of Diderot’s first commissioned work—Small Infinities by composer Lembit Beecher—and the release of the group’s recordings of Mozart and little-known composer Hyacinthe Jadin.
