Just beginning their 2nd season together, Sylvestris Quartet is excited about the upcoming release of their debut album, “The Good Song: Fauré in the 1890’s” recorded on gut strings and a beautiful Erard piano built in 1869. The project was recorded in June 2017 in Seattle, with baritone Harry Baechtel of Portland State University, and pianist Michael Seregow of Washington State University.

Violinists Anna Washburn and Tyler Lewis, violist Aaron Westman, and cellist Gretchen Claassen play with many of the nation’s leading period instrument ensembles, including Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra, American Bach Soloists, and Bach Collegium San Diego, and hold degrees from Juilliard, Indiana University School of Music, Boston University, and the San Francisco Conservatory of Music.  Sylvestris Quartet has also teamed up with Agave Baroque and Marin Baroque to present a new concert series in Marin, California called Marin Baroque Presents.
