They have been fortunate to perform community residencies in all fifty states; the Quartet’s collaborative approach and experience earning the following praise from the Chamber Music Society of Detroit “their artistic excellence, their generous spirit, and their fervent ambassadorship for great music, make them unique among America's greatest string quartets.” The Cavani Quartet continues to inspire and influence the next generation of classical musicians, viewing the empathy and connectivity of chamber music as a metaphor for the kind of communication we should strive for between cultures and nations.
