Non-traditional in their delivery, QSF redefines the sound of chamber music. “When the music says swing, we swing. When the music says groove, we groove.”
Grammy nominees for their last three CD releases (2009, 2007, and 2006) and International Tango competition winners (New York, 2004), Quartet San Francisco expresses itself in its agility and standout virtuosic playing. Quartet San Francisco was founded in 2001 by celebrated Bay Area violinist and composer-arranger Jeremy Cohen. He is joined by violinist Matthew Szemela, violist Chad Kaltinger, and cellist Andres Vera. As crossover specialists QSF excels in multiple styles — from jazz to tango, pop to funk, blues to bluegrass, gypsy swing to big band and beyond.
