Guggenheim Fellow and ASCAP Award winning composer Elena Ruehr’s six string quartets are a magnum opus in which echoes of Perotin, Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Dvorak, Schoenberg and jazz can be found, although the musical language is purely Ruehr’s own.

For Elena Ruehr, the appeal of the string quartet lies in the ability of four instruments to express an infinite range of emotional possibilities. Three of the string quartets were commissioned by the Cypress String Quartet, two by the Rockport Chamber Music Festival, and one is an ASCAP Award winner.
