Defying classification, Carpe Diem String Quartet has earned critical acclaim for their genre busting concerts, demonstrating their relative ease with classic quartet literature as well as gypsy, tango, folk, pop and jazz idioms. Carpe Diem is currently in the process of recording the nine string quartets of Sergey Taneyev for Naxos, the first of which has been released to great acclaim:
“The playing is excellent, unanimous in spirit, homogeneous in tone, with fine give-and-take between leading and supporting.”
– Edith Eisler, Strings Magazine
The quartet has dedicated itself to student outreach, establishing two successful education programs in central Ohio, “Connecting with Kids” – tying music to school curriculum, and “Music & Letters” – combining correspondence by famous composers with related pieces. Their vision extends to a complete revitalization the Chamber Music experience including thematic concerts, visual media and technology, and programs featuring living composers.
