The Cleveland Quartet made their debut at the Marlboro Music Festival in 1969 and soon were recognized as one of the great string quartets of our time. In addition to regular performances in the world's major concert halls, past seasons have been highlighted by 15 complete Beethoven cycles and a presidential inaugural concert at the White House.

This concert by the Cleveland Quartet is performed on four of the greatest string instruments ever made -- Paganini's own Stradivariuses. These four priceless instruments: two violins, a viola and a cello, are accession objects from the collection of the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington D.C. and, after extensive reconditioning, are now on loan to the Cleveland Quartet.
