Join the award-winning Thalea String Quartet on a journey through 20th century Russia with a program of Shostakovich, Schnittke and Stravinsky. A young and compelling ensemble, Thalea brings their deft virtuosity to these dark and daring works. Prepare yourself for an emotionally charged evening!

Praised for their "vibrant performance" and "sincere expressivity" (SF Classical Voice), the Thalea String Quartet is one of San Francisco's newest up and coming string quartets. Currently the first quartet-in-residence at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, they formed in 2014 at the Zephyr International Chamber Music Festival in Courmayeur, Italy. Named one of the "Top 10 Bay Area Quartets You Should Know" by CultureTrip.com in 2015, they have been described as "having the potential to be one of the finest [quartets] of its generation" by the Calgary Herald.
