What People are Saying About This

President of Bard College Leon Botstein

“There are few authentic legends in any generation, in any endeavor. In our corner of the music world, Robert Mann is justly one of those legends.”

Pulitzer Prize Winning Composer Elliott Carter

“If you wanted the Juilliard Quartet to play a Haydn quartet, you heard something . . . that made the music come alive.”

violinist Itzhak Perlman

“When I think about the Beethoven quartets, I think about Robert Mann . . . he was able to do it in such a successful way that it was totally contagious to the other players.”
