"Minnesota's foremost teaching and performing string quartet, Artaria Quartet is likely to give eloquent voice to whatever work it tackles.” 
— Rob Hubbard, Pioneer Press

“The precision of execution was striking.

It gave the excellent Artaria String Quartet a chance

to do some beautifully keen, precise, self-possessed playing.

Artaria's Bartok Fifth was sure, eager, and understanding.”

— Richard Buell, Boston Globe

“The Artaria impressed as a technically accomplished and

stylistically adaptable group. Their Haydn was full and robust.

They functioned as a smooth, well-integrated ensemble and were excellent in sound and technical capacity.”
— Robert Finn, Cleveland Plain Dealer

“Nationally acclaimed, Artaria performed with exquisite refinement. 
Their technical skills cannot be overstated.”

— Carol Winfield, Newport Express

It’s the sort of moment chamber music audiences live for.”
— Ron George, Corpus Christi Caller-Times

“Thoughtful and exacting...ultimately convincing.” — Wetzlar, Germany

— Eugene Lehner, Kolisch Quartet

“BRILLIANCE ON DISPLAY - -  The Artaria String Quartet communicated
with superb skill, warmth and energy.  Their sound was intimate and
