Bio: 

Praised for their “supreme melodic control and total authority” (Calgary Herald), the Argus Quartet is quickly gaining a reputation as one of today’s most dynamic and versatile young ensembles. Argus is dedicated to reinvigorating the audience-performer relationship through innovative concerts and diverse repertoire. . The quartet has shown that today’s ensembles can honor the storied chamber music traditions of our past while forging a new path forward. In that spirit, their repertoire includes not just staples of the chamber music canon but also exciting pieces by living composers.
