PEDROIA STRING QUARTET
WITH JAE COSMOS LEE and ROHAN GREGORY (violins), PETER SULSKI (viola), JACQUES WOOD (violoncello)
With an intense and beautiful blend of freshness and experience, the Pedroia String Quartet is bursting onto the Boston scene. To the unified and persuasive core of Peter Sulski and Rohan Gregory’s ten years of quartet playing together, add the power and fire of first violinist Jae Cosmos Lee, and the consummate beauty and flexibility of cellist Jaques Lee Wood, and you have the Pedroia Quartet.
The combination of Sulski’s seven years in the London Symphony, Lee’s founding of the most exciting new chamber orchestra in the U.S. “A Far Cry”, Wood’s solo appearances with orchestras in Seoul and Merkin Hall, Gregory’s tours to India, Thailand and Brazil with famous world music groups, comprise the ingredients that make up the complex and versatile playing of the Pedroia.
Having steeped themselves in the knowledge of the Juilliard, Cleveland, Tokyo, Vermeer, and Takacs Quartets the Pedroia members have gone on to play as guests with the Borromeo, Jupiter, Audubon, and Alcan quartets, and members have founded, toured and recorded with both the Arden and QX quartets. Sulski and Gregory, founders and ten year members of QX, held a Clark University residency, recorded on Albany Records and performed in Jordan and Mechanics Halls; to this core of experience add the dynamism of Wood and Lee, and Boston’s newest sound is heard: The Pedroia.
