In WFMT’s weekly live broadcast from Preston Bradley Hall at the Chicago Cultural Center, hear the dynamic young Tesla Quartet performing works by Schubert, Mozart, and Browne.

In 2012, the group was one of three finalists in the London International String Quartet Competition, which takes place every three years. The reviewer for the Evening Standard, Nick Kimberley, wrote of their performance: “The Tesla Quartet (US) followed with Debussy’s String Quartet, the fleeting atmospheres of which have defeated some of the world’s finest. This was a subtly coloured performance that balanced confidently between intimacy and extraversion. A real sense of four players listening to each other did not obstruct a natural rapport with the audience…based on the final alone, I would have given the prize to the Tesla.”
