Since its inception, the Orion Quartet has been consistently praised for the extraordinary musical integrity it brings to performances, offering diverse programs that juxtapose classic works of the standard quartet literature with masterworks by twentieth and twenty-first century composers. The members of the Orion String Quartet—violinists Daniel Phillips and Todd Phillips (brothers who share the first violin chair equally), violist Steven Tenenbom and cellist Timothy Eddy present a program of Beethoven’s String Quartet No. 1 in F Major, Op. 18, No. 1 and Dvořák’s String Quartet No. 13 in G Major, Op.106.
