Polter String Quartet
The Polter String Quartet performed in the Ithaca, New York area from 1991-1992. A collection of undergradate, graduate, and post-doctoral students in the sciences, they embraced a challenging repetoire of Shostakovich, Janacek, Barber, and other composers. They were awarded the Blackmore Prize for Music performance at Cornell University in 1992. This site offers several recordings of live performances in Barnes Hall, Cornell University, during that time.
