Within months of its inception in 2005 in the USA, the Escher Quartet was invited by both Pinchas Zukerman and Itzhak Perlman to be Quartet in Residence at each artist's summer festival.  Since then the quartet has flourished both in the US and in Europe with a number of appearances at the Wigmore Hall and King's Place, the Amsterdam Concertgebouw and the Berlin Konzerthaus.  Their Naxos recording of the Zemlinski Quartets was the Guardian's "Classical CD of the Year".
