The Telegraph Quartet recently won the 2016 Naumburg Chamber Music Competition, a prize that helped launch the careers of groups including the Pacifica, Brentano and Emerson string quartets and the Eroica Trio. The quartet also won the prestigious Grand Prize in the 2014 Fischoff Chamber Music Competition after playing together for less than a year. They were the only American quartet of the 15 from around the world invited to showcase at the 2016 Paris Biennale de quatuors à cordes (Biennial String Quartet Festival and Symposium). The ensemble was formed in 2013 with a passionate commitment to the standard repertoire as well as contemporary and new music.
