The Quartet Project
The Quartet Project is a six-volume collection of graduated string quartets by
composer Geoffrey Hudson. Modeled on Béla Bartók’s Mikrokosmos for solo
piano, the Quartet Project starts with pieces for open string and first finger
and then, over the course of six volumes, grows increasingly complex. Read
more about the music.
The first printing of The Quartet Project coincides with the release of an audio
The Quartet Project. Read more about the CD.
The Quartet Project is the culmination of an eight-year process,
encompassing the commissioning, workshop-testing, and publication of
nearly four hours of new music for string quartet. Read more about the story
Because teachers play such a vital role in opening the world of chamber music to new players, each volume of The Quartet Project
is dedicated to a master teacher whose work has touched generations of musicians. We are all deeply indebted to these individuals
and others like them for their artistry, wisdom, and enduring passion for chamber music. Click the photo to read more.
