    The Esme Quartet is a classical music string quartet composed of four
    young musicians: violinists Wonhee Bae and Brendan Shea, violist Jiwon
    Kim, and cellist Ye-eun Kim. The quartet was founded in 2016 at the New
    England Conservatory of Music in Boston, Massachusetts.

    The Esme Quartet has won numerous awards and competitions, including
    the First Prize and Grand Prize at the 2018 M-Prize Chamber Arts
    Competition, the Second Prize at the 2019 Banff International String
    Quartet Competition, and the Borletti-Buitoni Trust Fellowship in 2020.
    They have also performed at prestigious venues around the world,
    including the Berlin Konzerthaus, Wigmore Hall in London, and Carnegie
    Hall in New York City.

    The quartet's repertoire spans from classical to contemporary music,
    and they are known for their expressive and dynamic performances. They
    have collaborated with renowned artists such as pianist Menahem
    Pressler and cellist David Geringas.

    And *I* say :

    Their vision of Schubert's 15th quartet is simply exceptional,
    miraculous, magical, fabulous...

    It is obvious that the young interpreters of our time play incredibly
    well...
    Would it be to say that there is a progress [sic] in the way of
    interpreting the Music since a few decades ?...I ask the question...

    I enjoy the newer generation of string quartets too.

    In an unrelated development, Esme is also the name of a pet hyena -- the title character in a most sardonic short story by Saki (HH Munro).

    Except the quartet's name is Esmé, not Esme.

    L'accent aigu makes all the difference! ;-)

    Not exactly. It is a good performance that
    misses a few steps to being miraculous,
    magical, fabulous...

    That distinction belongs to the Strub Quartet.

    There can be no question piano performance has
    greatly improved since Arrau, Serkin and Brendull.

    On 5 1937 Electrola numbers EH 1039-1043.

    Melmoth probably has them in his collection.
