Quartet San Francisco has received a Grammy Nomination for their latest release: Whirled Chamber Music, an irresistible mixture of genre-bending chamber music. Virtuosic and authentic, QSF redefines the sound of chamber music and leaves concert-goers with a new appreciation for what can be accomplished by eight hands and sixteen strings.

QSF feels passionate about this mixture of American genres on Whirled – blues, funk, jazz, tango, and rock – and they perform each work from within the style in which it was conceived. The tradition of chamber music has taught them to play from their hearts with the highest playing standards we can apply.

Quartet San Francisco offers this collection of contemporary pieces to the world of chamber music. We embrace the tradition and carry it forward in our own unique way while acknowledging its roots. Without the history and tradition of chamber music, this material would never exist in this form. Every piece on this CD was arranged or composed out of the sheer passion for playing it. We bare our souls and give all we have to the performance of it. We do hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we have enjoyed bringing it to you in this form.
