ABOUT THE ARTISTS ​Since its inception in 1985, the Turtle Island Quartet has been a singular force in the creation of bold new trends in chamber music for strings. Winner of the 2006 and 2008 Grammy Awards for Best Classical Crossover Album, Turtle Island fuses the classical quartet genre with folk, bluegrass, swing, be-bop, funk, R&B, new age, rock, hip-hop, as well as music of Latin America and India. The group’s fifteenth recording, Confetti Man, recently was nominated for a 2016 Grammy in the Instrumental Composition category. A reviewer in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch extolled: “It must have been like this when Beethoven was taking Vienna by storm – the exhilaration of seeing the future of classical music unfold before your eyes and ears.”

“A unified voice that truly breaks new ground – authentic and passionate – a reflection of some of the most creative music-making today.” - Yo-Yo Ma
