“ Marking thirty-five years as an ensemble this year, the Cavani Quartet has earned its position as a mainstay of string quartet culture in the United States..., they have not only built an impressive performing career, but have been formative in the education of young chamber musicians.Their approach extends not only to how to interpret works, but how to work together and treat the other member of the group with love and respect. At the center of this ethos of quartet playing, is keeping music at the center of what they do, “not the ego.” Their standards of professionalism in all domains were clearly pronounced, from their interactions with the audience and with each other, to the fineness of performance and forthrightness of interpretations.”

“For me, it is thrilling beyond words to see the continuation of The Cavani Quartet with the addition of Catherine and Kyle. It’s as if the roots of the quartet are coming to fruition, and when I hear them play together I felt that they were lifting up the audience with the beauty of their collaboration. I felt the strength of their individual voices supporting each other in a loving way. The performance brought everyone to a beautiful place. Long live the Cavani Quartet!”
~Peter Salaff, Violinist, Founding member of The Cleveland Quartet
Daniel Hathaway, Cleveland Classical.comThat the Cavani String Quartet, even in its transitional state, continues to draw a large and devoted following attests to its long and close relationship with the many students the ensemble mentored during its tenure at the Cleveland Institute of Music.
Elizabeth Lyon, Hudson ReviewBy simply bringing together these connections in such an evocative way, “Collage” taught me to introspect about how I experience and direct emotions, leading me toward possibilities for empathy and human connection in ways I couldn’t have envisioned.
