The Juilliard String Quartet, widely known as the quintessential American string quartet, is comprised of Joseph Lin (Violin), Ronald Copes (Violin), Roger Tapping (Viola), and Joel Krosnick (Cello).
Founded in 1946, the Juilliard String Quartet was the first ensemble in the United States to play all six Bartok quartets, and its performances of Schoenberg's quartets helped establish the works as cornerstones of the modern string quartet literature. In performance, recordings and incomparable work educating and training the major quartets of our time, the Juilliard String Quartet has carried the banner of the United States and The Juilliard School throughout the world.
