Opus 76 Quartet

Known for their entertaining and energetic interpretations of the classics, the Opus 76 Quartet has been called “Kansas City’s gem of a quartet” by The Kansas City Star. Earlier this year, the group was named MTC’s first-ever digital artists-in-residence and will continue as artists-in-residence in 2022.

This fall, the quartet is scheduled to appear as guest artists with the Kansas City Ballet, performing works by Philip Glass in the Ballet’s season-opening performance of “Wunderland” at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts. They also will release the album “The Six Quartets Dedicated to Haydn by W.A. Mozart,” recorded by Kansas Public Radio at the Midwest Trust Center.

In 2020, the quartet released its live album in celebration of Beethoven’s 250th anniversary, “Beethoven: The Complete String Quartets,” which included his 18 string quartets. The group has given master classes at the Juilliard School, the Royal Academy of Music in London, Missouri State and Missouri Western State University. In 2019, they were invited to perform at the Ad Astra Music Festival in Russell, Kansas. The ensemble is coached by Károly Schranz, the recently retired founding member of the Takács Quartet.
