The Pacifica Quartet performed the complete Shostakovich cycle of string quartets to great acclaim in New York and Chicago during the 2010-2011 season.  According to the Chicago Tribune, "The remarkable Pacifica Quartet coaxed the music's unfathomable sorrows, fleeting joys and macabre humor to the surface as if creating it on the spot."  The New York Times called the Pacifica "enterprising and eloquent" and said its Shostakovich installments were "beautifully and powerfully played." 

Named Musical America's 2009 Ensemble of the Year, the Pacifica Quartet also won a GRAMMY® Award for Best Chamber Music Performance for its Elliott Carter String Quartet Naxos release, as well as stellar reviews for its recordings for Cedille
