Quatuor Diotima is one of an elite club actively expanding the string quartet repertoire. The ensemble has worked in close collaboration with several of the greatest composers of the late twentieth century, notably Pierre Boulez and Helmut Lachenmann, and it regularly commissions new works from the most brilliant composers of today. In the final concert of its UChicago residency, Quatuor Diotima performs music by phenomenal women from the 19th century to the present.
