Praised this season by the New York Times for its "lean, tightly wrought sound and impeccable ensemble work," the Calder Quartet is at the vanguard of a generation breathing new life into classic repertoire and charting new terrain through collaborations with living composers. Fresh from a prestigious residency at Juilliard, the ensemble returns to Berkeley with Schubert's masterful Death and the Maiden, and a Schoenberg quartet featuring soprano Yulia van Doren, who sang at Cal Performances in Mark Morris's Ojai North program last season.
