Our great American society is all about brand recognition, from our soft drinks to our clothing and even people's names. At the core of establishing a brand is equating a name that is synonymous with an experience and emotions. In the world of classical music, The Juilliard School in New York, has established its name to signify their outstanding quality as a leader in the arts of dance, drama and especially, music. The Juilliard String Quartet is a classical music string quartet founded in 1946 at the Juilliard School in New York by William Schuman. With a name that carries an iconic brand name of Julliard, the standard is high and for eight decades the quartet has been exceeding expectations and has positioned themselves as being one of the most important American string quartets. The Juilliard String Quartet consists of: Areta Zhulla and Ronald Copes (violins), Roger Tapping (viola), and Astrid Schween (cello). The quartet is releasing a new recording titled, Beethoven – Davidovsky – Bartók.   The new album features Beethoven's Quartet Op. 95, ("Serioso"), Bartók's String Quartet No. 1. and the world premiere recording of Mario Davidovksy's Fragments, String Quartet No. 6.
