After 43 seasons, the Tokyo String Quartet has announced that 2012-2013 will be their last. Regarded as one of the supreme chamber ensembles of the world, the Tokyo Quartet — Martin Beaver and Kikuei Ikeda (violins), Kazuhide Isomura (viola) and Clive Greensmith (cello) — has collaborated with a remarkable array of artists and composers, built a comprehensive catalogue of critically acclaimed recordings, and established a distinguished teaching record. Performing over a hundred concerts worldwide each season, the quartet has a devoted international following across the globe.

The Quartet has collaborated with many distinguished musicians and composers throughout its career. Well-known Canadian pianist Jon Kimura Parker joins the Quartet for a performance of Brahms’ great Piano Quintet in F Minor. An accomplished chamber musician as well as a noted soloist, Jon Kimura Parker has been a duo partner with violinists James Ehnes and Cho-Liang Lin and cellist Lynn Harrell, a guest artist at several chamber music festivals, and is currently Artistic Advisor to the Orcas Island Chamber Music Festival.

The ensemble performs on the Paganini Quartet, a group of renowned Stradivarius instruments named for legendary virtuoso Niccolò Paganini, who acquired and played them during the 19th century. The instruments have been on loan to the quartet from the Nippon Music Foundation since 1995, when they were purchased from the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C.
