Acclaimed as America's premier postclassical string quartet, ETHEL invigorates contemporary concert music with refreshing exuberance, fierce intensity, imaginative programming and exceptional artistry.

“This ultra-virtuosic ensemble can dig into its strings like rockers, is shamelessly amplified in all that it does, but projects startling clarity of musical
comprehension… unlike anything I've encountered.”
- Philadelphia Inquirer 10/11/03

"Ethel was as fresh and direct as crowds dancing in the street"
-Wall Street Journal, 5/21/2003

"Now that it has dazzled critics and hipsters around New York, Ethel is poised to bring its downtown, genre-bending sensibilities to a larger audience."
-Billboard, 9/13/2003
