International string quartet breaks up after 20 yearsmain
Based in San Francisco and touring Europe, Asia and the Americas, the Cypress String Quartet have announced their breakup.
They will give a final concert in June, coinciding with the release (on Avie) of their recording of the complete Beethoven quartets. Good way to say goodbye.
The players – Cecily Ward, violin; Tom Stone, violin; Ethan Filner, viola; and Jennifer Kloetzel, cello – were groomed at the start of their career by members of the epic Amadeus Quartet.
We wish them individually every future success.
