Since 1980, the Lydian String Quartet has inspired critical acclaim worldwide. Their interpretive mastery of standard and contemporary repertoire has resulted in prizes at international competitions in Canada, France, England, and in New York (Naumburg Award for Chamber Music), and concerts throughout the United States and abroad. Their recordings reflect their diverse and far-reaching repertoire, including works by Beethoven, Brahms, Ives, Schubert, as well as American composers Harbison, Hyla, Ornstein and Wyner. The Quartet hosts a biennial composition prize, and is an ensemble-in-residence at Brandeis University in Waltham, Massachusetts.
