In 1946, the newly-formed Juilliard String Quartet set its mission: “to play new works as if they were established masterpieces and established masterpieces as if they were new.” Seventy years and several personnel changes later, the storied ensemble brings the same irrepressible sense of energy to every performance. Hear their fresh perspective on works by Beethoven and Dvořák, alongside an introspective late 20th century work by Scottish composer James MacMillan.
