Stereophile (reviewing "Beethoven: The String Quartets") In nearly 20 years on the concert stage, the four members of the San Francisco-based Cypress String Quartet (CSQ) have played thousands of concerts together throughout North America, Europe, Asia and Latin America. Praised by Gramophone for their "artistry of uncommon insight and cohesion," and by the NY Times for "tender, deeply expressive" interpretations, they have recorded over 15 albums and are played regularly on hundreds of radio stations throughout the world. They have also been heard on the Netflix original series "House of Cards" and have collaborated with leading artists ranging from Michael Franti of Spearhead to modern dance companies. James Dunham, is professor at Rice University, a founding member of the Naumberg Winning Sequoia Quartet, and the Grammy-winning Cleveland Quartet. In addition to guest appearances, such as tonight, he is a member of the Axelrod String Quartet that plays on Stradavari instruments at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, D.C. Jean-Michel Fonteneau, San Francisco Conservatory of Music, is a founding member of the Ravel String Quartet, winner of two prizes at the Evian String Quartet Competition, and of the first French Grammy Award "Les Victoires de la Musique Classique". They toured extensively around the world and single-handedly created the first ever string quartet residency program in France.
