Deepest Dedication
“As part of a personal dedication of six quartets to Haydn, Mozart’s D minor Quartet flourishes through operatic narrative and personalities. Beethoven’s patronage by the Russian Count Rasumovsky served as a launching point to expand on classical form and search for new realms of cross-cultural possibilities, centering the work around Russian church modes and a hymn. We dedicate our exciting commission by Karim Al Zand, made possible by the CMA Commissioning Grant, to the thriving new-music scene today, and who help keep this living tradition vital to our shared cultural fabric.” – Balourdet Quartet

The Balourdet Quartet – currently Graduate Quartet-in-Residence at the prestigious Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University – received the Grand Prize at the 2021 Concert Artists Guild Victor Elmaleh Competition, as well as prizes in international competitions including the Banff, Borciani, and Carl Nielsen Competitions. The Quartet was also awarded the Gold Medal at the 2020 Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition and the 2021 Chamber Music Yellow Springs Competition.
