Friction Quartet, whose performances have been called “stunningly passionate” (Calgary Herald) and “exquisitely skilled” (ZealNYC), exists to modernize the chamber music experience and expand the string quartet repertoire. Friction achieves its mission by commissioning new works, curating imaginative programs, collaborating with artists, and presenting interactive educational outreach. Joshua Kosman (San Francisco Chronicle) declared Friction Quartet, “The Bay Area’s redoubtable new-music ensemble,” and describes their performancing as “high-octane music making…a fine blend of rhythmic ferocity and tonal flair.”
