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

CD featuring nine leading quartets Chiara , Brooklyn RiderMiró, Parker,

Borromeo, Lark, Jupiter, Apple Hill, and Artaria performing 38 selections from

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

of The Quartet Project .

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.
