The Enso’s members all were drawn to the string quartet repertoire because of its richness and diversity, and the ensemble is committed to exploring the four corners of that repertoire. The Enso regularly performs the classics of the string quartet literature, but also champions lesser-known works that deserve to be heard, along with much contemporary music, including works the Enso has commissioned. The ensemble also performs many of its own transcriptions, including arrangements of 16th Century Renaissance music. The ensemble’s name is derived from the Japanese Zen painting of the circle, which represents many things: perfection and imperfection, the moment of chaos that is creation, the emptiness of the void, the endless circle of life, and the fullness of the spirit. "...the quartet brought it off with smoldering power — half honey, half molten lava.." ~ The Washington Post "The Enso players captured all of the work's austere beauty, with a cool tone, bright timbres and impeccably clean execution." ~ Brian Wise, Strad Magazine photo by Christina Hurst
