Henschel Quartett with Telegraph Quartet and Scott Pingel, bass
Germany’s multiple prize-winning Henschel Quartett, founded in 1994, returns with a spectacular program featuring noted Bay Area-based guest artists the Telegraph Quartet and SF Symphony Principal Bassist Scott Pingel. The Los Angeles Times raved of Henschel: “This is, no question, one of the best groups in the world.” Formed in 2013, the Telegraph Quartet won the 2016 Naumburg Chamber Music Competition and Grand Prize in the 2014 Fischoff Chamber Music Competition, two of the world’s most coveted awards. The two quartets will join forces on our stage for a powerful octet performance.
