The Juilliard String Quartet has a new violist, Molly Carr.

She replaces the legendary Roger Tapping who died in January.

Molly, who is presently isolating with Covid-19, was previously violist of the Iris Trio. She continues to play as the Carr-Petrova Duo. She lives in Harlem with husband Oded Hadar.

  • A lady says:

    Congratulations to Molly, who is a kind, thoughtful individual and marvelous string player. She will make a very fine addition.

  • NYMike says:

    I guessed this outcome and told her so at an Escher Qt post-concert party a month ago.

  • David K. Nelson says:

    Her website, which is extensive, seems to say nothing about what viola she is playing and is photographed with. Maybe some insider knows?

  • Larry W says:

    Wonderful player. Filling Roger’s shoes will be some feet.
