Last year was a big one for the Omer Quartet. The group took second prize in the Trondheim Competition in Norway and first prize in the auditions held by Young Concert Artists, which presented the Omer in its New York debut at Merkin Concert Hall this week. These four musicians, who came together at the Cleveland Institute of Music, certainly rose to the occasion.

“The Omer Quartet played as if the ink were still wet on the page. It made it seem as if Haydn was not some bust on the piano, but a living, breathing composer. This was an invigorating interpretation, played with a sense of discovery and adventure, but also with considerable finesse.”

“A first-rate ensemble of young artists, the Omer Quartet shone delightfully.”

“The Omer’s approach to Haydn is as fine as any ensemble. In Debussy, the recreation of the composer’s kaleidoscopic range of instrumental color and timbre was excellent, and the Quartet’s expressive choices were convincing. The ensemble brought plenty of drama to Chris Rogerson’s work, and an individual and very satisfying interpretation of the Beethoven Grosse Fugue.”

“The ensemble [along with accordionist Hanzhi Wang] fully expressed all the complexities of Piazzolla with a deep, modern, yet romantic sound.”
