In 2016, the Calidore String Quartet electrified its career by entering the inaugural M-Prize International Chamber Music Competition and walking away with the largest prize for chamber music in the world. From there, the accolades piled up: The New York Times heralded the group’s “deep reserves of virtuosity,” the Los Angeles Times recognized its “balance of intellect and expression.” On its new album, Resilience, CSQ seeks to soothe cultural anxieties, offering “performances of quartets by Mendelssohn, Prokofiev, Golijov and Janáek as a message of hope because they illuminate the human potential to create beauty, even in the darkest of circumstances.”

Tuesday 11/27. $12-39, 7:30pm. Tuesday Evening Concert Series, Old Cabell Hall, UVA.
