The Juilliard String Quartet is internationally renowned and admired for performances characterized by a clarity of structure, beauty of sound, purity of line and an extraordinary unanimity of purpose. Celebrated for its performances of works by composers as diverse as Beethoven, Schubert, Bartók and Elliott Carter, it has long been recognized as the quintessential American string quartet.

In its history, the Juilliard String Quartet has performed a comprehensive repertoire of some 500 works, ranging from the great classical composers to masters of the current century. It was the first ensemble to play all six Bartók quartets in the United States, and it was through the group's performances that the quartets of Arnold Schoenberg were rescued from obscurity. An ardent champion of contemporary American music, the Quartet has premiered more than 60 compositions of American composers, including works by some of America's finest jazz musicians.

In the 2010/11 season, the Juilliard String Quartet performs throughout North America, including dates at Alice Tully Hall, the Chamber Music Society of Detroit, the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Louisville Chamber Music Society, Van Cliburn Concerts and elsewhere. They also make their annual tour of Europe, and on February 12, 2011, the Juilliard String Quartet was honored by The Recording Academy with a Lifetime Achievement GRAMMY Award, at a ceremony in Los Angeles, with members past and present in attendance.
