They were the first ensemble to play all six Bartók quartets in the United States, and their performances of Schoenberg’s quartets helped establish the works as cornerstones of the modern string quartet catalog. With more than 100 releases to their credit, the Juilliard String Quartet is one of the most widely recorded string quartets of our time. The members of the Juilliard String Quartet comprise violinists Joseph Lin and Ronald Copes; violist Roger Tapping; and cellist Joel Krosnick.

Juilliard, in collaboration with the New York Philharmonic, presents a farewell chamber music recital in honor of violinist Glenn Dicterow, who is taking a West Coast faculty position at the end of the 2013-14 season. The concert on Sunday, January 19 at 5 PM in Alice Tully Hall features Mr. Dicterow with his fellow New York Philharmonic musicians, most of whom also have a strong Juilliard connection, and includes specially selected works by John Corigliano, Korngold, and Dvořák that reflect Mr. Dicterow’s career in both New York and Los Angeles. Mr. Dicterow is joined by pianist Gerald Robbins, violinist Lisa Kim, violist Karen Dreyfus, and cellist Eileen Moon. The program features the Violin Sonata of Juilliard faculty member, New York-based composer John Corigliano; excerpts from Hollywood film composer Erich Wolfgang Korngold’s Much Ado About Nothing Suite; and the String Quartet No. 12, American by New York-transplant Antonín Dvořák. The Korngold work represents Mr. Dicterow’s history in Los Angeles, where he grew up and served as associate concertmaster and concertmaster of the Los Angeles Philharmonic before joining the New York Philharmonic, and where he will be headed. Mr. Corigliano’s father, John Corigliano, Sr., served as New York Philharmonic concertmaster from 1943 to 1966, and his piece represents Mr. Dicterow’s time in New York, as does the Dvořák’s American Quartet. Mr. Dicterow has been a member of the Juilliard faculty, and his wife, violist Karen Dreyfus is a faculty member as well. Lisa Kim and Eileen Moon also studied at Juilliard. FREE tickets will be available January 6 at the Janet and Leonard Kramer Box Office at Juilliard.

Glenn Dicterow frequently appears as a guest soloist with other orchestras, including the Los Angeles, Baltimore, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Mexico City, and Montreal, as well as the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, Monterey Symphony Orchestra, Hong Kong Philharmonic, and the National Symphony Orchestra in Washington, D.C. He held his position at the New York Philharmonic as concertmaster for 34 seasons, the longest of any New York Philharmonic concertmaster. He has been a member of the faculties of Juilliard and the Manhattan School of Music. He also is a graduate of Juilliard where he studied with Ivan Galamian. His other teachers included: Jascha Heifetz, Henryk Szeryn, Joachim Chassman, Naoum Blinder, and Manuel Compinsky. Mr. Dicterow and his wife, violist Karen Dreyfus, are founding members of the Lyric Piano Quartet and the Amerigo Trio. They both will be joining the faculty of USC’s Thornton School of Music in the fall of 2013.

A recital by the New York Woodwind Quintet takes place on Wednesday, March 19 at 8 PM in Paul Hall. Members of the New York Woodwind Quintet are flutist Carol Wincenc, oboist Stephen Taylor, clarinetist Charles Neidich, bassoonist Marc Goldberg, and hornist William Purvis.

The Quintet has commissioned and premiered more than 20 compositions. They include quintets by William Bergsma, Jon Deak, Ezra Laderman, Evis Sammoutis, Gunther Schuller, William Sydman, Wallingford Riegger, Alec Wilder, and Yehudi Wyner.
